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.
We recently put beautiful new flame jellies (Rhopilema esculentum) on exhibit. Their golden and crimson tentacles flutter like flames as they swim, while their frilly fringe traps food. These jellies are found in coastal waters off China and Japan, but you can see them now in The Jellies Experience.
