    We compiled data on California Current fishes (89 nearshore, 65 shelf/slope) and benthic crustaceans (35 nearshore, 15 shelf/slope) and found three unique sets of life history traits displayed by (1) shelf/slope species, (2) nearshore pelagic‐spawning fishes (all from the Southern California Bight [SCB] and Baja California), and (3) all other Cited by: that portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. it may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise Deep Ocean Basin the part of the ocean floor that is under deep water beyond the continental margin and that is .

      The spatial distribution of rockfish over the continental shelf and slope generally indicated a ridge of increased diversity at approximately m depth, at least for samples taken at northern latitudes ([degrees]N) (Fig. 4).

A continental shelf is a portion of a continent that is submerged under an area of relatively shallow water known as a shelf sea. Much of these shelves has been exposed during glacial periods and interglacial shelf surrounding an island is known as an insular shelf.

The continental margin, between the continental shelf and the abyssal plain, comprises a steep continental.

The number of successful tows completed during the marine debris study is shown by INPFC area and depth stratum for the combined – period ().Fig. 1 summarizes the distribution of total benthic marine debris (by weight, kg) collected during the and West Coast Groundfish Bottom Trawl Survey.

The figure incorporates all tows, regardless of the Cited by: The distribution of ‘live’ (Rose Bengal stained) and dead benthic foraminiferal distribution (> µm) was investigated in sediment surface samples (0–1 cm) from the winter upwelling region off Borneo on the continental slope of the Sunda Shelf and Cited by: Demersal fish, also known as groundfish, live and feed on or near the bottom of seas or lakes (the demersal zone).

They occupy the sea floors and lake beds, which usually consist of mud, sand, gravel or rocks. In coastal waters they are found on or near the continental shelf, and in deep waters they are found on or near the continental slope or along the continental rise.

Cobb Seamount is located in the international waters of the Northeast Pacific Ocean (46° 44 N, ° 48' W; part of the Cobb-Eickelberg Seamount chain; Fig 1).Spanning an area of km 2 ( hectares) and a depth range of 3 km, the seamount rises from the surrounding Cascadia Basin to a central pinnacle 24 m below the current sea level (ca.
