Aquatic is a term often used in biology and ecology. Literally, it means watery, and refers to both fresh and salt-water. So aquatic plants or animals are those that live in water: ponds, rivers, oceans. Aquatic mammals include whales, dolphins, seals, walrus, and also otters, beavers, and other river forms. Aquatic birds are even more numerous: ducks, herons, waders, kingfishers, penguins.

Aquatic may also refer to:

  • Aquatic animal, either vertebrate or invertebrate, which lives in water for most or all of its life
  • Aquatic plants, also referred to as hydrophytes or macrophytes, are plants that have adapted to living in or on aquatic environments
