"Life on this planet grows in unusually distinct and diverse ecological biomes. Further study recommended."
―PDA, Dialogue

The Kelp Forest is one of the most diverse biome types in Subnautica. It is characterized by the abundance of Creepvine, and possesses a distinct greenish hue in the water.

Description Edit

The Kelp Forest is one of the most productive and dynamic ecosystems on 4546B. They are also the gathering grounds of Stalkers.

It is located at medium-shallow depths, and is home to many passive life forms, with the exception of StalkersBleeders, and Drooping Stingers. The seabed is mostly mossy and sandy, with the terrain being comprised of grassy knolls and arches, sometimes showing entrances to small cavern systems. The Kelp Forests have some unique materials like Creepvines and Stalker teeth. There are many canyons to be found in these forests.

Most of the raw materials found here are at medium-level depths, with many harvesting nodes such as Limestone and Sandstone. The Creepvine seed clusters, found on some Creepvines, not only provide light and a beautiful night time scenery, but are also crucial ingredients for making lubricant and silicone rubber.

There are currently five Kelp Forests on the map, some containing wrecks or destroyed lifepods, or even both.

A lot of metal salvage can be found here due to the Stalkers' gathering behavior.

Dense Kelp ForestEdit

As the Kelp Forest becomes more dense when the player swims deeper, it transitions into the Dense Kelp Forest. Here, the water possesses a darker shade of green than the normal Kelp Forest's. Mesmers can be found here, so the player should be more cautious while exploring the area.
