Cruise the kelp

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Bladder kelp, or rimurimu, sustains itself on sunlight, like plants on land. But it also provides habitat for other organisms, nurseries for small fish and sort of jungle gyms for spider crabs which forage for mussels and other crustaceans, sometimes climbing up the kelp itself.
