R26 (1-7)Marine Animals Rate Change
Issue Date: January 28, 2013
On January 28, 2012, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued
seven new stamps for postal rate changes featuring Marine Animals. The denominations are $0.33, $0.46, $1.10, $5.60, $12.35, $16.85 and $23.95. About 14,000 species of fish live in the world's
oceans. Typically, each of these creatures is suited to a particular environment and cannot survive anywhere else. Two factors that play an important role in determining which fish live where
are water depth and temperature. The largest and fastest swimmers, for example, live near the surface of open waters, far from shore. Fish that reside in midwater areas, a murky environment
around 600 feet below the surface, are generally dark-colored and may even possess light producing organs. Some of these varieties, however, do venture to upper waters to feed or lay their eggs.
Bottom dwellers are equally distinctive. Accustomed to a cold, dark habitat, many of these creatures have large heads and eyes, as well as long, slender tails that aid in navigation of the ocean
