Maddy Ecosystem

Definition:The abyssal zone is a deep region of the ocean where oxygen is scarce, water temperatures are frigid, and the pressures are hundreds of times higher than they are at sea level. Even though it may seem unsuitable for life, it is indeed full of it.

This ecosystem rests below one kilometer of water, and it remains in perpetual darkness.

Limited resources:Organisms compete for light and nutrients.

The rare six-gilled shark lives in deeper waters close to coastlines all over the world. They live very solitary lives in the deep; however, they come up to shallow waters at night to feed.

Anglerfish live all over the world in the abyss. and they use their bioluminescent leur on their head to attract prey into their beastly maws.

Saccopharyngiformes, or gulper eels, may look like eels, but they have many internal differences. They capture prey from crustaceans to fish in their giant mouth, which can stretch to eat food bigger than itself.

Primary Productivity: NONE
