Bull Kelp

Bull kelp has made amazing adaptations to survive in the harsh Gulf of Alaska environment. It is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, and can grow to 100 feet in length. It is found around deeper water shorelines and often washed up on beaches after storms. The area close to Orca Cannery is an excellent place to tide pool and look for seaweeds, including bull kelp.
