Seaweed detail.png

Seaweed is a key ingredient in making molten glass, although it must first be cooked into soda ash. This is not necessary if the player is using the Lunar spell Superglass Make. Using seaweed on a range or fire yields soda ash, giving 1 Cooking experience per seaweed cooked, 4 xp if a dwarven army axe is either wielded or in the player's inventory.

A pestle and mortar can be used on seaweed to create ground seaweed, which is only used for making fish food, and awards the player with 1 Cooking experience. Players can buy 80 noted Seaweed from Arhein daily.

Obtaining seaweed[edit | edit source]

For free[edit | edit source]

Seaweed can be found in several places, along shorelines and sometimes rivers. Some locations are:

  • Karamja. The western and eastern shores of the central part of the island have seaweed, as does the northern shore of east Karamja (south of Musa Point). The north bank of the river flowing through Shilo Village has 3 seaweed.
  • Entrana. 20 total: 9 east of the chicken pen, 6 north of the Law Altar, and 5 south-west of the sand pit and farming patch (Weapons and armour cannot be taken to Entrana.)
  • Northern Fremennik Province, in the Rock Crab area north-west of the entrance to Keldagrim. This area has 9 seaweed spawns and is recommended. Use a full inventory of seaweed nets to maximize gathering speed. Players can use the cave to go to Keldagrim and bank there, or access the bank at Zanaris using Fairy ring DKS. (Players must complete at least part of the quest A Fairy Tale Part II to have full access to the fairy rings.) Players can use the Rellekka lodestone to teleport fairly close. 
  • North-eastern corner in Piscatoris Fishing Colony. There are two nets with seaweed.
  • Seaweed can be harvested every 24 hours from an Aquarium in your Player-owned house.
  • Seaweed can also be collected over time using a granite crab familiar.

Making Money Using Seaweed[edit | edit source]

Seaweed can be used to make money, although this is less common as of 2015 due to the fall in price over the last few years. Examples would include:

  • Buying 80 noted Seaweed a day at Catherby from Arhein for 2gp each and selling them in the G.E. for a total profit of 8,880. This will usually sell quickly on the Grand Exchange. You will have to talk to him to get the option to buy them. Right-click trade does not offer Seaweed.
  • Buying Seaweed from the Grand Exchange, cooking it into soda ash and selling it yields a profit of -94 coins each.
  • Catching Seaweed using a Big fishing net in certain fishing spots around RuneScape that are close to a bank, such as Catherby.
  • After completing Deadliest Catch, Fisherman Jones will reward you with several deposit chests; one of which is located south of the Karamja lodestone. If walking isn't an issue this chest can be used to collect seaweed for an indefinite period of time.
