Sea Lace or Dead Man’s Rope

Seagrass Beds

Dead man’s rope can grow to a length of up to three metres. As a member of the kelp family it is a brown algae. Its corpus contains countless air-filled chambers allowing it to grow upwards towards the sun. Several thin fronds grow out of a single holdfast, intertwining and creating a very unique, almost impenetrable habitat of its own.
