   Coastal is a biome in Zoo Tycoon 2: Marine Mania.


The coast is a rugged area where the land meets the sea. Coastal typologies can vary from smooth beaches to rugged bluffs. This biome includes temperate cool waters, which are rich in nutrients due to coastal upwelling that brings nutrients near the shore. Large kelp beds and other submerged vegetation is found here and is the staple for the marine ecosystem. Water here is typically cloudy due to the high amount of nutrients, which is called eutrophic water.
