Description: In the Northern hemisphere, Giant Kelp is most commonly found on the Pacific coast all the way from Alaska to Baja, California along rocky shorelines. While it looks like a plant, kelp is actually a form of large brown algae and doesn't have any roots at all. It has root-like grabbers, called "holdfasts" that wrap themselves around rocks on the ocean floor. From all the way to the bottom of the sea, kelp can range from 6 to 100+ feet tall as it reaches toward the sun. Instead of having roots, kelp gets all of its nutrients through photosynthesis from its fronds (leaves).
