The intertidal zone known as the foreshore or seashore, is the area, above water level at low tide and underwater at high tide. This area can include several types of habitats with various species of life, such as seastars, sea urchins, many species of mes it is referred to as the littoral zone; the well-known area includes steep rocky cliffs, sandy beaches, or wetlands. Intertidal Communities. Injury Over 1, miles of coastline were oiled by the spill in Prince William Sound, on the Kenai and Alaska peninsulas, and in the Kodiak Archipelago. Heavy oiling affected approximately miles of this shoreline. It is estimated that percent of the 11 million gallons of crude oil spill by the Exxon Valdez washed ashore in the intertidal zone.
