About the design:

The word “Maritime” refers to anything that deals with the sea, like sea dragons, for example. “Pelagic” refers to the open water of the ocean, away from any shore and well above the bottom. It is a vast aquatic habitat and has many creatures adapted to a life of eternal swimming, things like whales, tuna, and jellyfish. “Benthic” is used to describe organisms that live on the bottom of bodies of water, most commonly it refers to the ocean as well. Water plants, starfish, coral, and crabs are all benthic organisms. The ocean contains many different regions and we are discovering new wonders in it every day. Perhaps somewhere there are even sea dragons.
