Growing kelp to fight ocean acidification and store carbon. Currently, there isn't a huge market for harvested kelp in the United States, but some companies are trying to change that, touting the benefits of kelp in everything from food to biofuels.

Commercial fisherman, Bren Smith, invented a way to grow large amounts of food vertically under the surface of the ocean.  Better yet, he's open sourced all the plans and offered them to people around the world to implement and improve upon.  The farms harvest mussels, scallops, oysters, clams, seaweed and salt. Smith points out that the setup soaks up nitrogen and 5 times the carbon dioxide of land-based plants, referring to it as a "climate mitigator." This process transforms the fish...

The mounds of kelp that recently washed onto local beaches point to a thriving offshore ecosystem created by restoration efforts over the past decade, experts say. Ten years ago, there was practically no kelp off Orange County’s coast. Pollution and an overabundance of predators such as sea urchins had decimated the kelp forests, killing 80 percent of what Southern California had a century ago. But over the past decade, environmentalists and others planted nearly 5 acres of kelp along ...

Sea anemones, though considered the flowers of the sea for their gracefully flowing tentacles and array of colors, are not plants at all. The tentacled organisms are meat-eating animals that typically attach themselves to the seafloor or coral reefs. Here, a sea anemone grows on the rocky bottom of a kelp forest off Monterey, California. Sea anemone come in all sizes, shapes and colors. Here's a look at some of their diversity.

But while native fish targeted only adult macroalgae, the two species of rabbitfish fed complementarily – one targeted the mature kelps while the other fed almost exclusively on emerging algal “recruits,” or juvenile plants.

Researchers believe that algae could power our cars and heat our homes, and combat climate change. Biofuels that use seaweed could provide the energy for a sustainable and climate-friendly lifestyle.
