My paragraph: the marine biome is the bottom of the ocean there are fishes sharks dolphin and more the marine biome is about

36,200 feet deep Kelp grows in the bottom of the ocean.

LOCATION: The marine biome is the biggest biome in the world! It covers about 70% of the earth. It includes five main oceans: the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic, and Southern, as well as many smaller Gulfs and Bays. Marine regions are usually very salty! There is about one cup of salt per gallon of water in the ocean.

The ocean is divided up into three vertical zones. The top layer is called the euphotic zone and it is the area of the ocean where light can penetrate. The next layer is the disphotic zone. This area is too deep for lots of light to reach. Instead, the light here looks like our twilight on land. The deepest part of the ocean is called the aphotic zone, or deep sea. The water here is awfully cold, completely dark, and low in nutritional content. The deep sea comprises 80% of all the habitats on earth, which makes it the largest habitat on the planet. The deepest point in the ocean, the Mariana Trench is deeper than Mt. Everest is tall! The Mariana Trench is about 36,200 feet (10,000 meters) deep.

WEATHER:The Weather in the Marine Biome is very diverse. It really depends on what ocean you are talking focusing on. The climate changes it get warmer as you get closer to the equator and it gets colder as you get closer to the poles. The weather in the Marine Biome has a great influence on our terrestrial climate.


Kelp is a plant that grows in the ocean. Its leaves are great brown blades that grow up to 50 feet long and can grow to more than 100 feet long below the surface of the ocean. Laminderia is another type of kelp found along rocky shores. It can grow 15-20 feet long, but it is usally much smaller.Kelp houses a variety of sea creatures including tiny barnicles and inch wide sea-anemonies. These animals cling to the steam of the kelp plant near the ocean floor at the bottom of the kelp forest. At the base of the kelp forest are sponges, red and yellow starfish, muscles and clams.


The marine biome covers three fourths of the earth and there are hundreds of different fish to cover each square foot of it. The main kinds of animals in the sea are whales, dolphins, sharks, and seals which are some of the most popular kinds of sea mammals. Other kinds of animals and fish that live in the sea are the walrus, star fish, eel, crabs, jelly fish, and fresh and salt water fish, but this is just a small list compared to the many different kinds of fish that inhabit the marine biome. In general these fish have about five different adaptations. These adaptations include sleek bodies to cut down on friction when swimming through the water, gills to allow them to breath underwater, eyes on the sides of their heads so they can see enemies coming, fins to help them swim faster, and they have color coded skin to help them hide from their enemies. Most of the small fish are herbivores and the larger ones are carnivores.
