This painting was inspired from a recent fishing trip up to the amazing waters of Quatsino Sound on northwestern Vancouver Island BC. The Salmon, Orca's, Bait fish, Kelp beds and fragile Inter-tidal zones. the entire Eco system all play a huge roll in each other's fragile cycle of life, they are all connected.
Kelp forests provide important three-dimensional, underwater habitat that is home to hundreds or thousands of species of invertebrates, fish and other algae. Some species aggregate and spawn in kelp forests or utilize these areas as juvenile nursery habitat. Predatory species of Orca's, Sharks and marine mammals are known to hunt in the long corridors that form in kelp forests between rows of individual plants.
Many fish species use kelp forests as nurseries for their young, while seabirds and marine mammals like sea lions and sea otters use them as shelter from predators and storms.
