Rocky reefs are important habitat types found throughout the Sanctuary. The reef provides food, shelter, and attachment sites for many seaweeds, invertebrates and fish. The reproductive blades, called sporophyll, are located near the base of the giant kelp plant (Mycrocystis pyrifera) just above the holdfast. (photo: Shane Anderson)
