All types of Sharks, Whales, Coral, Jellyfish, Squids, Crabs, Starfish, Dolphins, Stingrays, and Sea Turtles are biotic in the ocean.
The avg temperature is 28.5F, Nutrients, and oxygen are abiotic in the ocean.
Ocean Limiting Factors
Nitrogen is a limiting factor to the ocean because, the cause of the algae growth.
Food Chains and Food Webs
The largest number of individuals of one species that the environment can support.
The Energy Roles
A factor that limits population size like temperature, light, space, disease.
Trophic Levels and Energy Pyramids
Producer, Consumer, and Decomposer
The process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to use foods from carbon dioxide and water. Photosynthesis in plants generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a by product.
- Tropisms are directional movement responses that occur in response to a directional stimulus. Plants are not able to relocated if they happen to start growing where conditions are suboptimal.
The Roles of Decomposers
Most of the decomposers in the ocean, at every trophic level, can be described as either animals or microbes. Animal decomposers live as scavengers, usually on the sea floor, and microbial decomposers, such as bacteria, can be found on nearly every surface or floating freely in the water. http://www.ask.com/geography/examples-ocean-decomposers-3cd0ebee4372ccd4

A Food Chain is a single pathway connecting a producer with several levels of consumers.
Many food chains interconnected into a network is called a Food Web.
