Kelp (K42) is a young male killer whale who was born in 2008. Kelp is named after the brown algae called bull kelp that commonly grows along rocky seashores in British Columbia. Killer whales are often seen playing with or dragging bull kelp along their dorsal fins. Kelp is a very spunky little whale and researchers have a difficult time photographing him, because he is so quick.
