According to EnchantedLearning.com, dolphins live in what is known as the euphotic zone, which is sometimes referred to as the sunlit zone — part of the continental shelf that extends down to depths of anywhere from 50 to 660 feet. This zone is so named because it is lit by the sun for at least part of the day.
