Durvillea antarctica is the scientific name for the seaweed commonly known as bull kelp or rimurapa. Durvillea grows all along New Zealand’s southern coasts, holding fast to the rocks at low tide. Ever since I studied seaweed at University it has for me, defined our wild and rocky coast. Durvillea is named for the French adventurer Dumont d’Urville who explored and charted the rugged and beautiful Marlborough Coast in 1827. The illustration on our label combines the blades of this seaweed with the dramatic coastline of the Marlborough province.
