Module 14: The Deep Ocean

We have learned about the surface layer of the ocean: the epipelagic zone. As we continue our study of the ocean divisions, we will now investigate the deep ocean, where light is not abundant.  This area can be divided into two major regions:  The mesopelagic zone (200 meters to 1000 meters)and the deep ocean (1000 meters to 6000 meters and beyond).

Because there is so little to no light in these regions, organisms are specially equipped in their body design to live in this region and to find food.
