Next time I'll take photos and be more careful in my observations to take better notes here but I noticed that, normally when I nibble rockweed right from the rocks in June/July, the flavor is significantly richer than what it was today. I found the salt and crunch were diminished and even the appearance of the rockweeds were more dull - I don't know why but I'll start to find out as I observe more closely.

Description from Wikipedia

The Phaeophyceae or brown algae (singular: alga), is a large group of mostly marine multicellular algae, including many seaweeds of colder Northern Hemisphere waters. They play an important role in marine environments, both as food and for the habitats they form. For instance Macrocystis, a kelp of the order Laminariales, may reach 60 m in length, and forms prominent underwater forests. Another example is Sargassum, which creates unique habitats in the tropical waters of the Sargasso Sea....
