Kelp fronds and pneumatocysts, gas filled bladders float the kelp and leaf-like blades collect sunlight, underwater, Macrocystis pyrifera, Catalina 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 through California's Southern Channel Islands, Macrocystis pyrifera The Kelp Forest offshore of La Jolla, California. A kelp forest.
