Seahorse Frequently Asked Questions / What happens to seahorses during the winter?

It depends on where in the world you are. Near the equator, the behavior of seahorses stays the same all year long and they generally maintain the same territories. In Northern and Southern climates with a distinct seasonal change, they travel to deeper water in the winter. Not much is known about what they do in the deeper water, or how far they travel. They likely go to deeper water because the temperature stays more stable than shallow water.
