New type of Kelp discovered in the Aleutians

Scientists have discovered a new variety of kelp in the waters off the Aleutian Islands. The kelp’s common name is Golden V Kelp, after its shape and color. NOAA Fisheries scientist Mandy Lindeberg first identified the new species on a 2006 research cruise in the Aleutians.
