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.

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.

Blue Shark
Scale illustration of an average Blue Shark with dimensions for height and length compared to a human

The Blue Shark (Prionace Glauca) is a shark with blue skin coloring for which they were named from. They are often found in deep waters all over the world from in different temperatures ranging from tropical to cold. Blue Sharks have a lethargic nature, but can move very quickly if necessary.

Blue Sharks typically feed on small fish and squid, but can take on larger prey if needed. Female and male Blue Sharks generally live in different places until they have to mate. They can live up to 20 years. The Blue shark is considered to be endangered.

Blue Sharks have a total length between 8.5’-13’ (2.6-4 m) and an overall weight in the range of 120-400 lb (54-181 kg). The typical lifespan of the Blue Shark is 15-20 years.

Whale Shark
Scale illustration of an average Whale Shark with dimensions for height and length compared to a human

The Whale Shark (Rhincodon Typus) is the largest shark in the sea and have a gray-brown skin covered with white spots. They typically live in the tropical oceans and are rarely seen in water with a temperature below 70°F (21°C). Whale sharks are slow-moving and docile.

Whale Sharks are filter feeders, typically eat plankton as well as other small fish, and have about 3,000 small teeth. The average size of their litter is of 12 pups. Whale Sharks are considered in danger of extinction as their current population trend is decreasing.

Whale Sharks have a total length between 30’-62’ (9.1-18.9 m) and an overall weight in the range of 41000-50000 (20.6-25 tons) (18600-22675 kg). The typical lifespan of the Whale Shark is 70-130 years.

Atlantic Blue Marlin
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Atlantic Blue Marlin compared to an average person

The Atlantic Blue Marlin (Makaira nigricans) is a large ocean fish that populates the warm and tropical waters worldwide. They belong to the family Istiophoridae and are fast swimmers with females being larger than males. They are highly recognized by their striking beauty, lethal, spear-shaped upper jaw, and pronounced dorsal fins.

The bill of the Atlantic Blue Marlin is also round and pointed, which separated them from other similar looking fish. The Blue Marlin loves the deep open ocean and migrates to follow the warm ocean currents. They are loved by sports fishermen because of their fighting spirit when caught and have also featured in the commonwealth of the Bahamas coat of arms.

Atlantic Blue Marlins have a total length between 5.5’-14’ (1.7-4.3 m), body height of 10”-23” (25.4-58.4 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 200-1800 lb (90-816 kg). The typical lifespan of the Atlantic Blue Marlin is 20-30 years.

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

The Wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) is found in tropical and subtropical open oceans. They belong to the family Scombridae and highly valued by sport fishermen and commercial fishermen. They are large and aggressive predators that would show different color patterns to confuse prey.

The Wahoo is a solitary fish but could also be found in small schools or only congregated to breed. They are known to be broadcast spawners, fast swimmers, and attracted to floating debris. They are identified by their elongated jaws, slender bodies covered in less visible scales, silver bellies, and top in blue coloring. Their body color fades during death.

Wahoos have a total length between 40”-72” (102-183 cm), body height of 6.5”-12” (16.5-30.5 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 15-40 lb (7-18 kg). The typical lifespan of the Wahoo is 5-9 years.
