Because kelps photosynthesis does not function
when it is out of the water, it is normally found below low water level.
In Swedish waters it is found from about a half metre down. There, the kelp
can build real underwater
forests that sway in the waves, where, for those equiped with a mask,
there is much to discover.
Swaying forests of finger
kelp. The leaves hang down like curtains over the steep cliffs. The
picture was taken from about 5 m, upwards towards the surface.
