The undulating leaves of the sugar kelp can grow up to four metres long. In strong currents they wave like flags in the wind. Sugar kelp form their own richly structured habitat on the Baltic seabed – one that is extremely popular not just for hydrozoans, bryozoans and sponges. Even we humans have a weakness for this green-brown kelp – using its sugary sweetness in cooking and its oils in cosmetics.
