The Blood Kelp Zones are special biomes in Subnautica, characterized by a variety of giant Bloodvines, some of which carry Blood Oil pustules down near their stem.

The Blood Kelp Trench is located south-west from Lifepod 5, between the Dunes, the Sparse Reef, the Grassy Plateaus and the Sea Treader's Path. A cave opening that leads directly into the Lost River Precursor Cache can be found in this biome.

The Trench lacks the Crabsquids of the Northern Blood Kelp Zone, but still has predators in the form of Blighters, Ampeels, and Warpers. The more confined spaces may make it more difficult to avoid them if one is not careful.

It consists of a single deep trench with natural rock bridges spanning from one wall to another, and a small cavern system located below the Bloodvines where their roots can be found. One of the Wrecks can be found in this area, stuck between the trench's walls. This zone is nearly impossible to explore with the Cyclops due to the trench's narrow width.

A corridor leading to the Lost River is found in this Biome.

The Blood Kelp Zones are special biomes in Subnautica characterized by a variety of giant Bloodvines, some of which carry Blood Oil pustules down near their stem.

The Northern Zone can be found to the north of Lifepod 5, in-between the Northwestern Mushroom Forest and the Underwater Islands. This zone is considerably larger than the Trench, albeit being more exposed to the surface and not as deep.

Unique to the Northern Blood Kelp Zone are Crabsquids, as well as small "underwater islands" supported by large Floaters and Bloodroots. This biome is littered with Quartz.

The Northern Blood Kelp Zone also harbors a Precursor Cache, which is located in the deeper areas of the biome.

A corridor leading to the Lost River is located in the Northern Blood Kelp Zone.

Trivia Edit

  • Both Blood Kelp Zones have entrances to the Lost River. Both can be navigated with the Cyclops, but in the Blood Kelp Trench it will be a narrow squeeze. It will be awkward, but it is possible.
  • The lack of pigmentation in fauna and flora present is an evolutionary trait often seen in deep sea lifeforms. This is due to the high resources pigment requires to be produced and the lack of such resources in deep sea environments.
    • The lack of sunlight also creates an absence of pigment, due to the absence of harmful UV-radiation.
