The uppermost layer of the pelagic division is called the epipelagic zone. This is the area of water column that extends from the surface down to about 200 meters (650 feet).  This zone overlaps the photic zone. This layer of the ocean’s surface is where light can penetrate to  allow for photosynthesis.
