Asian eelgrass (Zostera asiatica)
Eel grass (Zostera marina)
Caption
A bed of Eel grass near the commercial wharf and pier in Monterey. It is a perennial flowering plant that is closely related to terrestrial grasses and is commonly found on mud or sand bottoms in protected waters of bays and estuaries in low intertidal and subtidal zones, only rarely being exposed at low tide. While the most common species in California is Zostera marina, the species near the Monterey Harbor is likely the invader Zostera asiatica (comment from Brent Hughes, UCSC).

Giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera)
Caption
The holdfast of Giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) . It functions to hold the kelp in place, but contrary to their counterparts on land, nutritional uptake does not occurr here, that is the function of the blades (or "leaves"). A large variety of thousands of smaller species live within the interstitial spaces of the holdfast.

Caption
Asian kelp, or "wakame" (Undaria pinnatifida) is an invasive species of kelp from Japan that has colonized many harbors along the California coastline, including Monterey and San Francisco. In Monterey harbor, it can grow quite large from the bottom, due to low water motion and relatively clear water.
