There are several ways to get this type of food, for example, you can dive for treasure (requires a special treasure tool). Otherwise, you can also explore the island’s secret cave located on the island with the shipwreck.
Note that you always get 10 Mermadic Kelp when you find them in The Sims 4 Island Living. Enough stock to transform all your Sims in the same family into pretty Mermaids. When you have your Mermadic Kelp, make your Sim eat it and within the next 24 hours it will turn into a siren when you go in the water.
