The Ocean’s 3 Light Zones Hey, who turned off the light?
Sunlight Zone Surface to 600 feet deep Top layer, near the surface. Photosynthesis occurs here 90 % of all marine life lives here Most fish & plankton live here.
Twilight Zone Only a small amount of light More pressure and colder No plant life Only a few animals who have adapted to little light can survive here 600 feet to 3000 feet deep
Midnight Zone Below 3000 feet No light 90% of ocean is in this zone Extreme water pressure Freezing Temperatures Not exactly cozy to most!
Life in the “Zone” aka the freak show !
Phytoplankton Plantlike organisms Produce much of the world’s oxygen through photosynthesis. Act as the base of the ocean’s ecosystem & food chain. Live in the sunlight zone.
Jelly Fish in the Twilight Zone Bioluminescence These creatures make their own light!
