Seaweed as soil amendment

Mary emailed me and asked:
I understand that using seaweed in your garden helps the build the soil. How much seaweed do you use? And does the bromine in the seaweed help get rid of the bugs in turnip?
Now, the seashore is probably a four hour trip from here and I know nothing about seaweed. If any of you readers can answer this question, please do so in the comments. Mary and I would both appreciate it.
In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
