Giant kelp forests grow rapidly; up to 2 feet a 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.
