Colorful Starfishes

17 Jul
Starfish are among the most familiar and beautiful of marine animals. About 1,800 living species of starfish occur in all the oceans, including the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic and Southern Oceans regions. Starfish occur across a broad depth range from the intertidal to abyssal depths (>6000 m). Their habitats range from tropical coral reefs, rocks, shell brash, gravel, mud and sand, to kelp forests, seagrass meadows and the deep-sea floor.
