Silly noob question

Is 'nori' the same thing as marine algae?

Well, nori is a kind of marine seaweed/kelp (I think its used in some kinds of sushi), and is often fed to algae grazing/herbivorous marine fish.

"Nori" is dried seaweed that is then chopped and pressed into sheets that are used for sushi. "Nori" is also laced with soy sauce that acts like a glue that holds the sushi roll together. Seems the fish like the salty treat.

I've opted to feed my fish straight dried seaweed, like the kind that goes into miso soup. I think it's more 'natural' than "nori". Personal preference.
