Oceanic | Marine Animals

The oceanic biome is by far the largest biome on Earth with 70% of the Earth being covered by the ocean. It is estimated that 1 million species live in the ocean, with most of those, about 95%, being invertebrates, like jellyfish and shrimp. There are also a few mammals, like Dolphins and Sea Lions, that live in the ocean with the largest being the Blue Whale. Although the ocean is one continuous body water, there are five different oceans: the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Antarctic, and Arctic. Being such a vast biome, it is believed that only about 5% of the ocean has been explored—leaving many more species of plants and animals undiscovered.

Basking Shark
Comparison illustration of the size of a Basking Shark to a typical person

The Basking Shark (Cetorhinus Maximus) is the second largest shark, after the whale shark. It has a gray-brown coloring with marble-like skin pattern. They are found in all temperate oceans of the world. Basking Sharks do not hibernate, are active all year, and do not stay in one place for more than a couple months.

During the winter, Basking Sharks swim to deeper waters. Basking sharks are filter feeders that feed passively while swimming and typically eat zooplankton, copepods, barnacles, decapod larvae, fish eggs, and shrimp. The Basking Shark is considered to be endangered.

Basking Sharks have a total length between 22’-35’ (6.7-10.7 m) and an overall weight in the range of 8800-13200 lb (4000-6000 kg). The typical lifespan of the Basking Shark is Up to 50 years.

Nurse Shark
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Nurse Shark compared to an average person

Nurse Sharks (Ginglymostoma Cirratum) are a species of shark that moves slowly, are bottom-dwellers, and have a smooth gray-brown skin that sets them apart from other sharks. They live along the western Atlantic and eastern Pacific oceans. Nurse sharks ranked fourth in the documented shark attacks to humans.

They are nocturnal and rest along the seafloor during the day. The mouth of the Nurse Shark is filled with thousands of small sharp teeth and their diet consists of shrimp and squid. It is not exactly known what their current population trend is as it has been claimed as data deficient.

Nurse Sharks have a total length between 7.5’-10’ (2.3-3 m) and an overall weight in the range of 200-330 lb (91-150 kg). The typical lifespan of the Nurse Shark is 15-25 years.

Giant Trevally
Scale illustration of an average Giant Trevally with dimensions length compared to a human

The Giant Trevally (Caranx ignobilis), also known as Ulua, barrier trevally, giant kingfish, and lowly trevally, are fish that belong to the family Carangiformes and inhabit the warm waters of the Pacific and Indian ocean. They are popular gamefish and not edible for the possibility of ciguatera poisoning.

These animals are identified by their strong tail scutes and steep head profiles. The Giant Trevally prefers solitary life and only congregates in schools to feed or reproduce. Juveniles are silvery-grey while mature male Giant Trevally have black colorations and spot an intimidating stare. They love to follow sharks and seals to feed on forgotten prey.

Giant Trevallies have a total length between 33”-67” (85-170 cm), body height of 10”-20” (25.4-50.8 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 33-132 lb (15-60 kg). The typical lifespan of the Giant Trevally is 10-25 years.

Vaquita
Dimensioned side elevation drawing of a Vaquita compared to the size of a swimming person

Vaquitas are a marine mammal that have a very particular appearance with their eyes and mouth blacked out and their upper side of the body is grey. Vaquitas are small mammals and one of the world's rarest. In 2018, researchers discovered that less than 10 vaquitas remain in the wild. Vaquitas have been on the endangered species list since the late 90s. Their environment is in the Gulf of California in Mexico, which is about 900 square miles. A big factor of their extinction is from increasingly lack of fish, squid, and crustaceans that make up their diet.

The typical Vaquita has an overall height of 12”-14” (30-36 cm) and body length of 4’-5’ (1.2-1.5 m). An average Vaquita weighs between 100-110 lb (45-50 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 20 years (average).

Vaquitas are marine mammals with a very particular appearance with their eyes and mouth blacked out and their upper side of the body is grey. Vaquitas have a size of four to five feet long (1.2-1.5 m) and weigh in around 120 pounds (50 kg). Vaquitas are small mammals and one of the world's rarest.

The typical Vaquita has an overall height of 12”-14” (30-36 cm) and body length of 4’-5’ (1.2-1.5 m). An average Vaquita weighs between 100-110 lb (45-50 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 20 years (average).

Atlantic Sailfish
Scale illustration of an average Atlantic Sailfish with dimensions length compared to a human

The Atlantic Sailfish (Istiophorus albicans) is a member of the sailfish family, Istiophoridae. They prefer colder seas and warm temperate oceans of the earth. It sports a white underside, but the top of its body is covered in gray color. Its name comes from its unique dorsal fin or sail, which is relatively higher compared to their bodies and runs along its entire back.

These fast-moving animals love to be near the ocean surface and away from land and also show an elongated bill. The Sailfish (Istiophorus) is a highly prized game fish, grows quickly and attacks prey by causing injury using its bill.

Atlantic Sailfish have a total length between 7.5’-11’ (2.3-3.4 m), body height of 13”-20” (33-50.8 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 132-220 lb (60-100 kg). The typical lifespan of the Atlantic Sailfish is 10-15 years.
