There’s no denying that Disney Dreamlight Valley is easily one of those games that you can get quite addicted to. The fact that it’s packed to the brim with engaging side quests that will require you to do your best to complete only reinforces it. Speaking of which, there are two major quests in Disney Dreamlight Valley that require you to collect an important resource: The Seaweed.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably doing one of those quests and are in dire need of seaweed. But the problem is that most of the players don’t know how to find it since the game doesn’t explain it well at all.
If you can relate to these players too, then our Seaweed guide is written just for you. Also read the Disney Dreamlight Valley Dreamshards guide.
In our guide, we will first discuss the methods available for harvesting algae and how these methods can be made even more efficient. We then discuss the possible uses of algae. So buckle up and prepare to get yourself some marine marijuana.

How to get algae
When it comes to methods available to obtain seaweed, there are only two of them. One will require you to pick it up right off the ground, and the second will require you to do some fishing. Now let’s discuss each method in detail. Also, take a look at the Disney Dreamlight Valley Royal Tools locations, and you can also check out our in-game Ratatouille recipe guide.
Collecting algae from the ground
This one is pretty easy; All you have to do is roam the valley looking for seaweed waiting for you to pick it up. There is one caveat, though: once you pick up the seaweed from a location, it never respawns. This means that you can only obtain kelp using this method until you eventually run out of places to pick it.
This makes the first method not as reliable in the long run when growing algae. However, we recommend that you should still try to make the most of it. Now that we have told you about the first method, we have shown you the second one.
Fishing for seaweed
The second method of catching algae is vastly superior to the first. The reason for this is that it allows you to get your hands on an infinite supply of seaweed. The method we are talking about is fishing. When fishing, you don’t have to worry about running out of seaweed.
Preparations for fishing seaweed
All you need for this method is a fishing pole (obviously) and a fishing partner (well, this one is optional). You can get Goofy’s fishing rod in the very early stages of Disney Dreamlight Valley. As for the fishing spot, although you can use any fishing spot available in your game, we recommend you go to Dazzle Beach because that’s where you’ll get the best bang for your buck.
Now for the fishing method itself, if you’re trying to fish for algae, the traditional fishing method, which requires you to cast your reel where the bubbles appear, won’t work. This will only give you fish you don’t need right now. Instead, you want to cast your reel in the area where the water is standing and bubbles aren’t appearing.
If you’ve followed the above instructions correctly, you should be able to get a steady supply of seaweed and a few low-level fish as well. But there’s one more thing that can make your search for seaweed a breeze. It’s said to bring a fishing buddy (hopefully you haven’t thought of Goofy, as we all know how annoying his overly energetic personality can be).
If you bring a fishing buddy, you’ll double your seaweed profits because every time you catch a seaweed, they get one too. It goes without saying, but this will cut in half the time it takes you to catch the required number of algae. So be sure to bring some company when you go seaweed fishing.
algae Used In Disney Dreamlight Valley
The following and final section of our guide covers all the amazing things you can do with Algae, as well as its role in completing some quests. When it comes to using seaweed, you can’t use it directly. However, you need it to craft Fiber, which is an absolute must for crafting many things in the game.
Examples of cases where you need fiber are beach torches, fences, sacks, baskets and hay bales. You will also need fiber to craft ropes, which you need to complete The Mysterious Wreck quest and repair Moana’s boat. So we think it’s safe to say that if you’re serious about progressing in the game, you should have a large amount of Seaweed.
