As Amends the Law Today


 Section 35619 is added to the Public Resources Code, to read:

 The council shall work with private and nonprofit entities, including the University of California at Davis and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, to bring sustainable kelp to the coastal waters of the state. The council shall review and assess data from existing research and ongoing pilot projects to identify critical knowledge gaps related to kelp forest ecosystems, kelp and sea urchin biological processes, kelp forest stressors, kelp-urchin population dynamics, incorporating carbon dioxide removal, and long-term carbon sequestration considerations.
