  • When people throw trash and and food into the ocean it is polluting and some small animals can die from suffocation
  • Sea grass/sea weed, is one if if not the most important plant in the marine habitats because
  • Habitats contain sea water diluted by land runoff; water temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen are important determiners of species' diversity and overall ecosystem productivity.
