Nerveleaf is a common seaweed, growing in most temperate waters at shallow to medium depths.

Nerveleaf is believed to derive its name from the fact that it looks a little like a spine with a radiating nerve system. Some people also have a mild allergic reaction to touching it when it's fresh, which causes temporary numbness and tingling.

It comes in brilliant reds and purples, and rarely in a very dark green. It ranges from about 6" long to 18", with flat tendrils up to 12" in spread. It propagates through its roots, which grow deep into sandy saline seabottoms, and it provides a dense haven for small fish.

Nerveleaf is edible, but not terribly tasty. It is very chewy and tough, and can be dried into an easy travel jerky if seasoned well.
