Kelp frond showing pneumatocysts, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island A kelp forest, with sunbeams passing through kelp fronds.  Giant kelp, the fastest growing plant on Earth, reaches from the rocky bottom to the ocean's surface like a submarine forest, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island A SCUBA diver swims through a giant kelp forest which is tilted back by strong ocean currents.   Giant kelp, the fastest plant on Earth, reaches from the rocky bottom to the ocean's surface like a submarine forest, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island Kelp frond showing pneumatocysts, Macrocystis pyrifera, Santa Barbara Island Blue shark and  offshore drift kelp, Prionace glauca, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Diego, California Blue shark underneath drift kelp, open ocean, Prionace glauca, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Diego, California Kelp fronds and pneumatocysts.  Pneumatocysts, gas-filled bladders, float the kelp plant off the ocean bottom toward the surface and sunlight, where the leaf-like blades and stipes of the kelp plant grow fastest.  Giant kelp can grow up to 2' in a single day given optimal conditions.  Epic submarine forests of kelp grow throughout California's Southern Channel Islands, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island The Kelp Forest offshore of La Jolla, California. A kelp forest. Giant kelp grows rapidly, up to 2' per day, from the rocky reef on the ocean bottom to which it is anchored, toward the ocean surface where it spreads to form a thick canopy. Myriad species of fishes, mammals and invertebrates form a rich community in the kelp forest. Lush forests of kelp are found throughout California's Southern Channel Islands, Macrocystis pyrifera Drift kelp, a kelp paddy, floating patch of kelp on the open ocean which attracts marine life and forms of moving oasis of life, an open ocean habitat, aerial photo, Macrocystis pyrifera California bat ray in kelp forest, Myliobatis californica, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island Blue shark and offshore drift kelp, Prionace glauca, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Diego, California Blue shark and offshore drift kelp, Prionace glauca, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Diego, California Blue shark underneath offshore drift kelp, open ocean, Prionace glauca, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Diego, California Boat Horizon above kelp forest, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island The Kelp Forest offshore of La Jolla, California.
