The kelp in Kelp Forests supports some thousands of different invertebrate individuals including polychaetes, amphipods, decapods, and ophiuroids. The Kelp Forest is obviously home to a diverse range of many different sized organisms also that work together beneficially.



Many organisms that live in the Kelp Forests of the world seem to be free floating, simple, not really complex and some seem to be migrating animals; staying only at the kelp forests for a short amount of time.
