Growing Kelp in Puget Sound

Enjoy this dive into the world of kelp in Puget Sound with the Puget Sound Restoration Fund (PSRF). PSFR and its many partners explore how they can harness the power of kelp to improve growing conditions in the water for shellfish and out of the water when applied to farmland.

The organization works collaboratively to restore marine habitat, water quality, and native species in Puget Sound through on-the-ground projects. They are committed to a vision of a clean and healthy Sound that is productive and full of life. Other programs they’ve launched are designed to spur clean water efforts and re-forge connections between people and resources.

Their work takes place on the tideflats, in the water, and at the hatchery as they rebuild breeding populations, enhance living marine habitat and incubate mitigation strategies.
