Broad habitat - Subtidal Rock
Subtidal rock habitats comprise bedrock, boulders and cobbles occurring below low water mark. The communities found here are strongly affected by the availability of light; shallow areas are typically dominated by seaweeds and in deeper areas below the photic zone (about 50m) communities comprise exclusively animals. Other factors influence the composition of communities including wave action, tidal stream strength and salinity.
