Cell Stage Edit
Seaweed can be encountered in level 4 of Cell Stage where it attached on bigger seaweed, preceded by green plant matter. It is only consumed by herbivorous, and omnivorous cells.
Tribal Stage Edit
They are acquired by fishing at a designated fishing spot along the coast. Only herbivores can acquire seaweed, while omnivores and carnivores acquire fish.
Other stages Edit
It does not appear in the Creature Stage, Civilization, nor Space stages. It can appear when herbivore tribes are seen fishing. It does not feature at all in Spore Galactic Adventures, even as an object that can be placed in adventures. Although the expansion pack does introduce new flora that resemble aquatic species (albeit mainly coral and sponges).
Cancelled stages Edit
- Seaweed can be a good, plentiful source of food for herbivores and omnivores in Cell Stage, but other herbivores may hang around it; these can both deprive the player of access to seaweed by consuming it first, and also attract predators.
- It can also appear in the player's city on a platter.
