Description

These seaweeds were very common on the rocks at the upper edge of the high tide line. I have included habitat photos as well to provide a better view of the seaweed's habitat.

Any suggestions or advice regarding their identification would be greatly appreciated!

Description

Found in upper intertidal region, the rock weed was orange to brown in color and had sizes of 5cm to 10cm in blade size. Base of plant seemed latched to the rocks in the area and grew in large groups of 10-30. Many other seaweeds grew around it, including small Turkish towel. However the rockweeds were overall largest in size. Many blades seemed to have gas filled pods at the ends of their blades which would allow for upright floatation of the plant.
