1. What is the average ocean salinity?
2. What reef is like a fringing but separated from the island by a lagoon? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Describe what is currently happening to the fisheries on South America’s west coast due to the irregular change in pressure systems that occur roughly every 3 to 8 years.

El Nino occurs in which trade winds weaken and upwelling off the western coast of south American does not occur. Water is very warm and nutrient poor thus fishery productivity is low

Correct! Next time, put your answer in hide boxes so that others don't see it immediately! Your turn!
