OceanFact:
The photic or euphotic zone (Greek for "well lit") is the uppermost layer of water in an ocean or lake that is exposed to intense sunlight. In the open ocean, it typically extends to a depth of about 200m. Since the euphotic zone is where almost all of the photosynthesis occurs, the depth of the photic zone is generally proportional to the level of primary production that occurs in that area of the ocean. About 90% of all marine life lives in the photic zone!

This afternoon we will dive deeper, so stay tuned!

What an incredible shot! Thanks @lauracorbe

Shark personalities are fascinating 🦈💙 If you’ve been on tour with @oneoceandiving you’ve almost certainly met Bully the sandbar shark #SharkIDBully We first met him a couple of years ago & were surprised & stoked to see him again here, hanging with the much bigger Galapagos sharks, to whom he should have been very deferent. But in true alpha style he was right in the thick of it, ahead of the shiver & on top of the pack #LikeABoss We can all learn something from this shark 😂💙🦈🌊

Protection of the Northwest Passage Hope Spot would ensure the survival of a vast majority of Arctic wildlife, including several million migratory birds of numerous species that congregate in the area at unprecedented levels.
