Bro,
Very interesting discussion.Anyway our phosphate remover all contain iron oxide and aluminium oxide.So I think it should work.
Only question is the grade of iron or aluminium oxide use.

But steel wool commonly sold might have chromium/molybdenum mixed in as in CrMo steel, but then it might be just normal steel. But i'm sure there is at least some chromium in it, to give some corrosion resistance, which MIGHT leech into the water.

Could be true but chromium will react with oxygen to form chromium oxide which is the protective layer of stainless steel. Chromium oxide will not corrode under seawater.
