Laminaria saccharina, Chorda filum and dense red seaweeds on shallow unstable infralittoral boulders and cobbles
|Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06
|Unstable boulders and cobbles in very shallow water may be seasonally disturbed which prevents a stable Laminaria hyperborea forest from developing. Seasonal movement of the substratum results in a community of the opportunistic kelp L. saccharina, Chorda filum and Desmarestia spp. with encrusting algae and sediment-tolerant seaweeds. The shallowest areas of the Sarns in Cardigan Bay are typical examples of this biotope.
