Atlantic Marine Ecozone - Gonzaga Geography

Atlantic Marine Ecozone - Gonzaga Geography

Atlantic Marine Ecozone Landscape This ecozone only touches land at the southern coast of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and the eastern coast of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

Landscape Winds from land to the west meets the warm Gulf stream, making the ecozone more temperate than it would otherwise be. Dense fog forms when the warm gulf stream meet the cold Labrador current.

Landscape The Bay of Fundy features the largest tide in the world. The difference between high and low tide can go as far as 15 metres in the difference. Vegetation

Phytoplankton : microscopic plant like organisms. They are the base of the marine food web. Seaweed and kelp are also found throughout the region Vegetation Tidal Marshes Extensive salt marshes

occur particularly in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island but less frequently in Newfoundland. Examples of vegetation in this area are: Saltmarsh Cord grass Wild Barley Sea lavender Wildlife The Grand Banks are

among the most biologically productive marine areas in the world Labrador Current + Gulf Stream Shallows of the continental shelf prepare ideal feeding grounds and spawning conditions.

Wildlife Animals and fish such as the northern cod, herring, grey seals, harbour porpoises, puffins and gulls live in this ecozone. There are also a number of bottom dwellers in the Atlantic: Barnacles, sea stars,

lobsters People The people of Atlantic Marine significantly depend on the ecozone for their livelihood. Fishing Lobster, shrimp, crab Aquaculture Experiments in scallop,

salmon and cod farming Mussel farming Offshore Oil and Gas Hibernia, Terra Nova oil and gas fields, reserves in Nova Scotia Threats Overfishing Canadian and foreign

fishing have driven down commercial cod populations to a serious level.
