Disney Dreamlight Valley seaweed is an important item for crafting and cooking, but you need to get lucky while fishing to collect some. You're probably stuck on Goofy's Mysterious Wreck quest, which tasks you with getting seven bits of rope, which is crafted from fiber, which is pulled from seaweed, and that's not even the only quest that requires the stuff. To even have a chance of catching seaweed, you need to throw your fishing lure where the fish aren't, i.e where there are no ripples. If you fancy yourself as a Disney Dreamlight Valley gourmand too, you'll also need seaweed for sushi recipes. Here's how you get Disney Dreamlight Valley seaweed using your fishing rod.

How to find seaweed in Disney Dreamlight Valley

There are a couple of ways to find Disney Dreamlight Valley seaweed:

  • Found on the floor in every area of the Valley (doesn't replenish)
  • By fishing anywhere but at the ripples

It's important to note that (at the time of writing) any seaweed you find on the floor will not regrow and appear later, or even the next day. So, after you've picked up these fairly limited pieces, you'll need to rely on chance through fishing in the game. 

If you fish anywhere in the Valley apart from at the ripples, which always guarantees you'll get a fish - or some other creature, such as a Disney Dreamlight Valley Lobster - you will get a chance to reel in some seaweed. The game doesn't really tell you that it's possible to fish anywhere aside from the ripples, which is pretty frustrating when you're on the hunt for seaweed.

To make rope in Disney Dreamlight Valley, combine eight fiber at a crafting table. This will get you a single piece of rope, so you'll need lots of fiber to create more rope.

Using seaweed to eventually make rope is just one of many crafting exercises you'll have to do in all the game's quests. Some will require you to gather Disney Dreamlight Valley Clay or Disney Dreamlight Valley Rich Soil.
