Kelp is a type of brown algae with recognized ecological value and management protections. This dataset summarizes occurrence of non-floating kelp (stalked or prostrate) species using data from the ShoreZone Inventory. It is classified as being patchy (less than 50%) or continuous (greater than 50%) along each unit of shoreline (an area with similar physical characteristics). The ShoreZone Inventory includes all saltwater shorelines statewide. It was completed between 1994 and 2000 using aerial videography collected at low tide. For more information on the inventory, see http://www.dnr.wa.gov/programs-and-services/aquatics/aquatic-science/nearshore-habitat-inventory
