Why is bull kelp necessary?

Why is bull kelp necessary?

Sunday, July 21, 2013

Well a fabulous couple of days mapping our kelp beds. Approximately half the island done now.

The kelp are reproducing. These lovely lighter lines are the sori patches. The baby factories ...yaay!

We did have a few visitors, here's one that came to check us out.

A wonderful surprise was finding False Narrows with beds having a population density of approx. 45 - 50%.

Another wonderful surprise was seeing bull kelp surviving above the water line at low tide.
