Fucus gardneri

Keyword Definition

Fucus gardneri is the most common species of brown seaweed along the southwestern coast of British Columbia.  It grows to 40–50 cm with irregularly dichotomous branches and is attached, generally to rock, by a discoid holdfast.  This holdfast is purely physical and does not access the composition of the underlying rock.  Colour variation is from pale to dark yellowish green, getting darker as it dries out between tides. It commonly has pale olive air bubbles (bladders) near the frond tips.
