Sugar Kelp is my favourite on the grounds (so Ive been led to believe!!!???) that it has a

really fast growing rate when it gets going - I was told 1cm a day - thats very fast.

Ive been searching for the growth rate but have only found 'prolific' but no figures for uk kelp.

There is a seasonal variation for growth,

being:
February to July fast growth rate
August to January slower growth rate

This info is for Laminaria digitata and was found on Marlins site

at:
http://www.marlin.ac.uk/Bio_pages/Bio_Eco_MIR.Ldig.Pid.htm

Also, according to Julia at the Dale Fort Field Centre in Wales, it is about 0.9cm/day for a

blade of Laminaria, but there are all sorts of variables.
