Where Are You Getting Your Iodine?

The how much is too much salt post got me thinking...Like many of you, I have shifted completely to sea salt and now find the flavor of the processed stuff too "chemically" and--I know, the irony!--salty. But I also live in a high thyroid problem area, and I am now concerned about the iodine I may be lacking (and my husband, who has a strong family history of thyroid under-performance, with his own tests being low for a male). Where do we get iodine FROM, if not from iodized salt? What food sources do YOU turn to for that necessary mineral?
