2. Sea otters are marine mammals that live in giant kelp forests along the Pacific coast of North America. Sea otters have an important role in the food web of this ecosystem. When sea otters are removed from the giant kelp forest, the kelp also begins to disappear. In your answer, explain why the absence of sea otters would lead to a decrease in the giant kelp. Then, choose another organism in the food web and explain why the decreasing amount of giant kelp would affect that organism.
