The three ocean zones are inter-tidal, Neretic, and the open-ocean zone.
The Inter-tidal zone
The intertidal zone, also known as the foreshore and seashore and sometimes referred to as the littoral zone, is the area that is above water at low tide and under water at high tide
The Neretic zone
The neritic zone is the relatively shallow part of the ocean above the drop-off of the continental shelf, approximately 200 meters in depth.
The Open-Ocean zone
The area of the open ocean where sunlight shines through the water is called the photic zone.
The three different Ocean Organisims: Benthos, Nekton & Plankton
the flora and fauna found on the bottom, or in the bottom sediments, of a sea, lake, or other body of water.
aquatic animals that are able to swim and move independently of water currents.
are the diverse collection of organisms that live in the water column of large bodies of water and are unable to swim against a current. They provide a crucial source of food to many large aquatic organisms, such as fish and whales.
