Abstract: Focusses on the ecophysiology of Ecklonia radiata and quantifies its carbon contribution to further elucidate E. radiata's role in the nearshore marine environment. The photosynthesis-irradiance response of E. radiata was investigated in situ throughout the year and across the dept profile. A clear seasonal change in photokinetic parameters was detected and provided strong evidence of a seasonal acclimation response. Changes in photokinetic parameters across the depth profile were less pronounced and a significant decline in productivity occurred at deeper depths. The acclimation state of E radiata did alter across the depth profile.
