Kelp Forests

Forests of kelp (also called seaweed) occur in the cool coastal waters of the northern and southern hemispheres, and support a large array of fish and invertebrate life. The largest species, called Giant Kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera), can reach a height of 100 feet in a single season, and is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world.
