the ocean

biotic factors:
fish, whales, sharks, dolphins, plants, jellyfish, plankton, sponges, shrimp, starfish, squids, etc.

abiotic factors:
sand, underwater volcanoes, shells, rocks, salt water, trash, etc.

carrying capacity:
limit of how many individual organisms an ecosystem can support && to be able to survive the animals need food, water, shelter, and space.

this graph is showing how the population of the ocean increases in time.

limiting factors && predators:
a limiting factor is a factor that limits the reaction rate in any physiological process by many variables. and a limiting factor in the ocean is disease && some predator and prey relationships are whales eating seals, sharks eating fish, fish eating seaweed, etc.

energy roles:
primary producers are organisms that produce biomass from inorganic compounds & an example is seaweed

herbivores are organisms that only eats plants & an example is a green turtle
