ABSTRACT
Kelp, the common name for brown seaweeds. Kelp is especially plentiful off the coasts of temperate and colder regions, where it clings to submerged rocks by means of root-like holdfasts. Dense forests of giant kelp grow off the Pacific coast, from northern California northward. Kelp provides food and shelter for fish and other seadwellers.
