Transcript of ocean biome

BIOME OCEAN FROM AQUATIC ANIMAL'S TO PLANTS AND LIFE THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS THAT MAKE THE OCEAN BUT SOME THINGS CAN HARM IT..... The ocean biome covers three- fourths of earth. The algae in the water supplies most of the world's oxygen. The ocean biome is separated into the intertidal, pelagic, abyssal, and benthic layers. The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean biome. Description of Biome: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is known as the world's largest landfill, but it is not on land. Located in the middle of the Pacific, the garbage affects Hawaii and other Pacific islands. The Hawaiian archipelago receives huge amounts trash shot out of the gyres. Great
Patch This relationship is an example of mutualism or commensalism. The clownfish goes in and out of the anenome. As it passes back and forth, it becomes accustomed to the anenome's chemicals. The clownfish gains protection from predators and the anenome gets food when the clownfish is chased. Sharks eat fish, seals, dolphins and other animals; this is an example of predation.
Barnacle hitch a ride on sea turtles and whales. This is an example of commensalism because the whale/sea turtle is not affected by the barnacles. The barnacles gain access to nutrient-rich water. Fish and Sharks Clownfish and Anenomes Dependence Barnacles and Sea Turtles or Whales The Great Pacific Garbage Patch The garbage from the gyres can trap the animals. The marine life might also mistake the garbage for food and eat it, which may could choke them. Effets on Marine Life Solution to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Humans need to start to recycle. If we recycle more, then the Garbage patch will not become larger. The materials we recycle also can be reused. Most of the trash actually originates from the land and the beach. If we don’t pollute the beaches, then the water will not drag the trash to the ocean during high and low tides. Some ways we can help:
cleaning up around local beaches
recycle more
help volunteer
donate to local groups for clean up of oil spills and garbage pollution
fix the oil rigs
and so much more! Please Help, this Amazing, Aquatic World THE OCEAN DEPENDS ON YOU! There are many different areas in the ocean including coral reefs, estuary's, intertidal zone, and many other areas. You may think of the ocean, with only coral reefs, but that is not the case. There can be areas with sand, sea grasses or seaweed. Cleaner Shrimp and Eel The cleaner fish, eat the dead tissue and parasites off fish and seabeds. The eel is helped and cooperates with the shrimp, and the shrimp also is helped. This is an example of cooperation sea anenome with venome
