Floating Meadows?

While Floating Forests is focused on canopy forming kelps – typically Giant Kelp, Bull Kelp, Sea Bamboo, and others these are not the only kelp. In New England, for example, kelps are only a few meters tall, and create vast meadows instead of ‘forests’. Take a look at this amazing video by Brian Skerry from Cashes Ledge featuring some great comments from our collaborator, Jon Witman.

      This one is quite healthy. It’s protected, and has done very well over the years. Definitely see what Jon has to say about it in the video!

    Thanks. I wonder if we’ll get a blog post about that artificial kelp reef that sometimes shows up and looks like a lot of green dots.
