Post by: TheKeeneroo on March 12, 2019, 02:17:07 PM
Here is a great video Josh Russo just posted of a site in SoCal that has done urchin removal, then time lapsed all the kelp growing back... How cool is that?!  8) 8) 8) I hope we all continue to join and share the Urchin removals for NorCal to #helpthekelp

That’s absolutely beautiful! 
Planning, Action and Validation all wrapped up into a presentation that should be used at the opening for every NorCal ABalone discussion and meeting.

Great video - I had no idea kelp could reestablish so quickly. Thanks for sharing!

My wife works at the MB Aquarium. They say that kelp can grow 2 feet per day which is crazy!

I just asked Josh if we could do it on our next event in May at Ocean Cove. Just have some local go dive it regularly along the same path and structure.
