Think You Know Your Kelp Forest Critters? Test Your ID Skills with Three New Videos

Reef Check California (RCCA) has produced three incredible videos using the footage from volunteers, partners, and staff for our species identification training. RCCA’s fish, invertebrate, and algae indicator species are represented here, as well as the codes we use during our kelp forest monitoring surveys. We’ve included 20 seconds of footage for each species (10 seconds without a label and 10 seconds with) so you can quiz yourself on each one. We’ve also grouped the organisms that look similar to each other, so you can observe the differences among them. Enjoy!
