    • Kelp grows in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. But the kelp forests are the most developed off of the California coast, from San Diego to Santa Cruz.
  • 3. What Do We Know About Kelp Forests?
    • Kelp forests occur in cold, nutrient-rich water and are among the most beautiful and biologically productive habitats in the marine environment. A dependence upon light for photosynthesis restricts them to clear shallow water and they are rarely much deeper than 10 a 40 metres.

    • Giant kelp is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. When conditions are good, kelp can grow two feet per day! A giant kelp plant can live up to six years.
    • There are also forests of sea water

    • Kelp can also reproduce by way of spores. A single plant can produce trillions of spores each year
  • 6. Plants and Animals.
    • Millions of plants and animals live in the kelp forest. There is everything from whales, that go into the kelp forest to hide, to the playful Sea Otter, that wraps itself in kelp so it won't float away while it sleeps
