      The problem may not be the supplier. The problem might be getting the
      product off the ships. Homeland security has passed ordinances that are
      impossible to complete in a timely manner, for example checking each
      container that comes in from overseas. The number of container ships
      sitting in San Diego harbor is huge.
      Thoughts from California.

      this could be disasterous! How do they know the 109 works, has anyone tested
      it for marbling?

      Fellow marblers...

      Has anyone had any problems getting carrag from FMC? I've been getting
      from them for over 15 years. I just ordered another 55 kilos, and they
      called back to say that they don't have it right now. I asked them when
      would have it again, and I was told "maybe next year".

      I tried asking other questions to the representative in Customer Service,
      she appeared rather vague and didn't answer my questions. They seem to
      having trouble getting the seaweed. FMC is offering an alternative
      product...Viscarin GP 109... has anyone tried it for marbling? They say
      that it is
      a weaker product, and it cost 65 cents more per kilo than the 209.

      Does anyone know of any other suppliers for carrag, and where, and for
      price per kilo?

      Any help would be very much appreciated.
