We often think of the oceans as one big bowl of salt water. But the fact is there are lots of different environments in the oceans — more than on land.

Coral reefs, estuaries, continental shelves, the deep sea — these are some of the ecosystems within the oceans. Ecosystems are communities of organisms that depend on each other and their surroundings. Each ecosystem is connected to those around it.
