Littoral zone organism

Littoral zone organism

The littoral zone is the part of a sea, lake or river that is close to the shore. This zone is in constant change. When the water levels rise it becomes inundated and when the water levels lower it stays moist but not submerged. The organisms living here have to be used to constant change. This is a picture of the littoral zone of a small river. The organisms in the picture are water snails which are littoral zone organisms.
