Giant kelp provides food and shelter for a vibrant ecosystem.
Look closely and you'll discover an astonishing diversity of fish and invertebrates swimming here and clinging to the kelp and algae.
Listen to live audio of our Kelp Forest feeding program and watch divers hand-feed sharks, fishes and other animals. If you're lucky, a wolf-eel will emerge to gulp some squid or fish.

Our youngest giant sea bass just tipped its scales from black to gold. You can spot this tiny (for now!) fish on the second floor near the Kelp Forest exhibit.
We're working hard every day to protect the ocean and the animals that call it home. Join us by supporting our Conservation & Science programs.
