Transcript of Marine Ecosystem

Marine Ecosystem
Animal Life

Marine ecosystems support a great diversity of life and variety of habitats. The open ocean has plankton and large predators, such as dolphins, whales, and sharks.
Marine habitats are the home to seaweeds, marine algae (brown, green, red), sea grasses, and coral, which are the only marine flowering plants.
Intro to Oceans
The ocean is not the same everywhere. There are many different ecosystems within the ocean depending on conditions such as the water temperature, the amount of sunlight that filters through the water, and the amount of nutrients.

Deep Ocean Zone
Intertidal Zone
The first layer of the ocean. It's where the ocean meets the land. It's also where plants and algae make their homes between the low tide and high tide levels.
The second layer of ocean is the largest area of the marine ecosystem. The open ocean is home to swimming fish, drifting plankton, and other creatures.
The third layer of ocean where in the sunlit parts of the shallow ocean, many animals, plants, and algae thrive on the seafloor as fish zoom above.
The fourth and final layer of the ocean. This cold, dark world offers some very unusual extreme environments where many living things have found ways to survive.
