You need permission from the owner of the beach to remove seaweed, even if it's not growing.
The owner may be the local council, the National Trust or an individual. Many beaches are protected e.g. SSSI etc and the seaweed forms an important part of the ecology of the area.
Don't go removing it without permission.
