Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary
The Producers of our environment our: Turtle grass, Calcareous green algae, Phytoplankton, and Zooxanthellae.

By: Kaitlyn, Olivia and Tori
Environmental Information

This Marine sanctuary is about 9,600 square kilometers. The reefs of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary the only living coral barrier reef in North America. It is the third largest system of coral reef in the world.
Abiotic factors
One abiotic factor is the temperature. The temperature during the wet season is hot, usually 80 degrees. The summer months are the hottest.
Human factors
The loss of coral reef habitat is due overfishing, careless recreational use. One-quarter of all marine species are found in coral reefs. Careless snorkelers can damage and break fragile coral by standing on or leaning against the reef. Even a soft touch can destroy the soft coral polyps living in their hard skeletons. A motorboat can tear up sea grasses in shallow areas. Over one-half of the world's coral reefs are at a high risk to be disturbed from humans. When humans touch the calcareous green algae it usually dies and the green algae produces oxygen. when the green algae dies it floats to the top of the water.
The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
The Primary consumers are: Three spot Damselfish, Knobbed fish, Nassaw grouper, Gulf flounder, Puddingwife, Christmas tree worm, Tunicate, French angelfish, Southern sting ray, Sergent major, West Indies spiny lobsters, parrot fish, schoolmaster, flamingo Tunge snail.
The secondary consumers are: Sea star, and Moray eel.
The tertiary consumers or higher is the Barracuda.
How much rain Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary has.
Another abiotic factor is the percipitation. It is mostly sunny but from May-October is the rainiest season.
Primary consumer
The primary consumer in our ecosystem is the three spot Damselfish. The tree spot Damselfish's role in its population is it provides food for the barracuda. It lives In the water on the northern part of Florida all the way to Venezuela. It eats zooplankton, Phytoplankton, Tunicates, and Green algae. The Barracuda is what eats it.
Its abiotic needs and interactions are it lives near reefs and shallow, warm water. the average humidity is 75%. The occasional cold fronts and rain are about 5 centimeters. The Florida Keys receives direct sunlight through out most of the year.
Our secondary consumer is the Barracuda. The barracuda's role in the population is the primary consumers. where is lives is the Gulf of Mexico. The barracuda eats: smaller fish, squid and shrimp. Nothing eats the barracuda. Other interactions or behaviors on the barracudas is they might attack swimmers and divers. The meat of the Barracuda is often poisonous to humans and should not be eaten. The average humidity is 75%.The Florida Keys receive direct sunlight through out most of the year. The sunlight helps the ocean water to be about 80 meters. The human impact on the population is when people go snorkeling they can damage and break fragile coral by standing or leaning against the reef.
One of the producers in are ecosystem is the calcareous green algae, the green algae gives food for the primary consumer the three spot damselfish. The calcareous green algae lives through the worlds tropical oceans. The calcareous green algae eats what it produced through photosynthesis. What eats the calcareous green algae is the primary consumer the three spot damselfish. Other interactions or behaviors is when the calcareous green algae die, the green tissue quickly decomposes and leaves the fragile, calcareous skeleton. Abiotic needs and interactions, calcareous green algae needs to live is light, water, and temperature. Populations abiotic needs and interactions is productivity depends on light, water and temperature.
