Kelp Restoration and Management Plan Working Group

The California Ocean Protection Council has partnered with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in the early planning stages of developing a statewide, ecosystem-based adaptive Kelp Restoration and Management Plan (KRMP) for giant kelp and bull kelp. The KRMP development process is anticipated to occur over the course of three to five years. To successfully develop the KRMP and ensure it reflects the best available science and community perspectives, CDFW and OPC will collaborate with the ocean community through the development of a community working group and are seeking nominees for the KRMP Community Working Group.
