The nearshore zone of the ocean—defined by the Census as the coastal areas to a depth of around 65 feet (20 meters)—is the most-studied region of the ocean because it is so. Coastal ecosystems have long been modified by humans, who rely on the ocean as a means of transportation and as a natural resource. Until the middle of the twentieth century, coastal communities were highly integrated into their environment to the point of being a very good example of what a resilient 1 coastal social-ecological system (SES.

Rocky shores, like beaches (or sandy shores) are characterized by the life that lives in the intertidal zone – the area between the high tide and low tide water levels. Life on rocky shores is tough. It is dominated by the need to deal with very high wave energy, regular exposure to the air/sun, and interactions between these two physical stressors and the strong biological pressure applied.

It is located on marine coastlines, including rocky shores and sandy beaches.
The intertidal zone experiences two different states: one at low tide when it is exposed to the air and the other at high tide when it is submerged in seawater. The zone is completely submerged by the tide once or twice.
Ocean Literacy: Essential Principals and Fundamental Concepts 5. THE OCEAN SUPPORTS A GREAT DIVERSITY OF LIFE AND ECOSYSTEMS. 5.d. Ocean biology provides many unique examples of life cycles, adaptations and important relationships among organisms (symbiosis, predator-prey dynamics and energy transfer) that do not occur on land.
5.f. Each book focuses in on a specific animal and how it travels during its life cycle. Each book tackles a separate problem that is troubling the life form of that location.
Carson uses fiction style writing influences to express the real problems faced by organisms on the shore, in the open sea, and moving water that humans otherwise would not. The most abundant life forms in the ocean are plankton; most are so small that you can't even see them (Figure ).These include many types of algae, copepods, and jellyfish.
Because exploring the oceans is much harder than studying the land, many marine organisms haven't been extensively studied by humans.Stuart A. Kallen:Ecosystems - Life On An Ocean Shore,HARD COVER,BOOK/OTHER,Released 07/29/Ocean and Coastal Ecosystems.
