Canopy Forming Kelp in Clayoquot Sound
Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society (SIMRS) is initiating a kelp research and monitoring project in Clayoquot Sound and we need your help! This project is investigating the integral role of canopy forming kelps in this area and what effects a decline in canopy abundance might have.

SIMRS is looking for information on areas in Clayoquot Sound where the kelp canopy (either Bull Kelp or Giant Kelp) has changed in size. If you have noticed kelp canopies getting bigger or smaller, please fill out the survey below.

The information you provide will direct SIMRS research and monitoring efforts. All data collected will only be used by SIMRS and any published data will be anonymously portrayed. This project is funded in part by the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust.

To find out more information about this project, please email: jessica.edwards@strawberryisle.org
