Ecosystem

The interaction between a community of organisms and their environment

Ecosystem

An aquatic ecosystem is a complex network of organisms (plants, animals, and microbes) and the non-living environment interacting in countless ways. Organisms feed off one another in a balanced food chain, but small changes to the seascape may significantly impact the existing balance. By just impacting one species population, the effects may propagate to all other species in the area, leading to either overpopulation or decimation of various species. As renewable energy devices enter the water, any stressor could alter the habitat enough to upset the balance. However, the particular concerns are chemical leaching, energy removal, and the device presence.
