Golden Kelp: Foundation Species of the Great Southern Reef

Great Southern Reef

The Great Southern Reef is dominated by a canopy forming seaweed species, Ecklonia radiata. This kelp, sometimes called common kelp or golden kelp is known as a foundation species as it provides food, shelter and habitat for hundreds of species. Seaweeds also play an important role in slowing climate change by taking carbon out of the atmosphere.
