Deep sea animals have adapted in many ways to their dark climate for example, many creatures have shed their eyes for they have no function in the dark climate also they have heat sensors so. This station focuses upon the adaptations that deep-sea fish have developed in order to survive the harsh conditions found within the deep-sea environment these adaptations include bioluminescence, pressure adaptations, feeding adaptations, and reproduction adaptations.
Adaptations for survival in the sea explores some of the adaptations used by various sea creatures to survive for example, some animals use camoflage to escape detection or to sneak up on their prey, while other animals have coloration which intentionally makes them stand out.
