How do organisms protect themselves from crashing waves and strong currents?

Many organisms use rocks to help with this problem. Sea Stars and anemones have suction cups, which allow them to latch onto rocks so they are not carried out to sea. Mussels use a thread-like substance called byssal threads that stick to the rocks. Anemones have a unique jelly-like body, which can withstand the crashing waves. For the same reason, sea stars have a strong leathery coating, and many shell organisms such as barnacles have hard shell covering.
