The power of kelp (video)

Increasing acidification in the Puget Sound and Hood Canal is taking a toll on the species that inhabit those waters. The PMEL Carbon Group worked with the Puget Sound Restoration Fund (PSRF) to help investigate the power of sugar kelp to improve seawater conditions locally. With increasingly corrosive conditions ahead, the project tested the efficacy of using native vegetation to buffer the pH of seawater in places with important shellfish resources. The 5-year project implements a key recommendation of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Ocean Acidification with funding from The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. Please read the PSRF’s Summary of Findings to learn more.
