  • Ocean Zones(shoreline to open ocean)

    Intertidal Zone Neritic Zone Open Ocean ZoneBenthic Zone

  • SunlightIntertidalZoneNeriticZoneOpen Ocean ZoneContinental ShelfBenthic Zone

  • Intertidal ZoneArea between high tide line and low tide lineOrganisms adapted to harsh, changing environmentsIntertidal ZoneContinental Shelf

  • The Impact of the Intertidal Zone

  • Neritic ZoneArea over the continental shelfArea of greatest density and diversity of marine lifeNeritic ZoneContinental Shelf

  • Open Ocean ZoneFrom the continental break out to open oceanOpen Ocean ZoneContinental Shelf

  • Benthic ZoneThe Ocean FloorUnderlies all the other zonesBenthic Zone

  • Lifestyles 3 Basic Lifestyles:PlanktonNektonBenthos

  • Ocean Lifestyles

  • PlanktonFloaters or very poor swimmersPlankton divided into 2 groups:Phytoplankton producers, photosynthesizersZooplankton consumers

  • PhytoplanktonMust live in the photic zoneMost abundant in shallow coastal areas or in upwelling zonesThe basis of the oceanic food web

  • ZooplanktonForaminifersRadiolariansCnidariansCombjelliesArthropodsLarvae

  • Zooplankton

  • Nekton(swimmers)Free swimmersManeuver actively in the water columnFound in the water column from surface to ocean floor

  • Nekton(swimmers)5 Categories:ReptilesMammalsFishArthropodsMollusks

  • Nekton(swimmers)Marine Reptiles:TurtlesSnakesCrocodilesIguanas

  • Nekton(swimmers)Marine Mammals:WhalesSealsOttersManateesDolphins

  • Nekton(swimmers)Bony Fish:TunaBarracudaEelsAngler Fish

  • Nekton(swimmers)Cartilaginous FishSharksRaysSkatesChimaeras

  • Nekton(swimmers)Marine ArthropodsShrimpMollusksSquidOctopi

  • Benthos(bottom dwellers)Live either burrowed in, resting on, or attached to the bottomPrimarily filter feeders, scavengers or deposit feeders

  • Benthos(bottom dwellers) 2 Basic Types:Sessile - Live attached to the bottomVagrant - Able to move about

  • Benthos(bottom dwellers)Sessile:BarnaclesSpongesCoralsSea AnemonesOystersClams

  • Benthos(bottom dwellers)Vagrant:CrabsSea StarsSea CucumbersSea UrchinsBrittle Stars
