THE DEEP SEA ZONES

THE OCEANS ARE DIVIDED INTO TWO BROAD REALMS; THE PELAGIC AND THE BENTHIC. PELAGIC REFERS TO THE OPEN WATER IN WHICH SWIMMING AND FLOATING ORGANISMS LIVE. ORGANISMS LIVING THERE ARE CALLED THE PELAGOS. FROM THE SHALLOWEST TO THE DEEPEST, BIOLOGISTS DIVIDE THE PELAGIC INTO THE EPIPELAGIC, THE MESOPELAGIC, THE BATHYPELAGIC, THE ABYSSOPELAGIC AND THE DEEPEST, THE HADOPELAGIC.
