Most of the oceanic plant life is algae, seagrass, seaweed, and kelp. The marine plants are classified into three types, the aphotic or midnight plants, despotic or twilight plants, and euphotic or sunlight plants. Among millions of marine plants, most are affected by water temperature, sunlight’s availability, and salt concentration.

They also oxygenate the ocean to help protect marine species from outside threats or elements. Oceanic plants are a major source of nutrients for many marine lives. The two major plant categories that live in the ocean are: floating plants that are found floating on the surface of the water and the deep-rooted plants that have roots on the ocean floor; such plants need sunlight to grow, so they are mostly found in shallow waters.
