5 depth zones have been identified in the ocean. Life is most abundant in the uppermost ‘euphotic’ layer, where photosynthesis occurs. The mesopelagic is practically dark, and many creatures hide here during the  day. The bathypelagic zone begins at 1,000 metres, where           the pressure is nearly 100 times greater than at the  surface. Below that lies the abyssopelagic zone,down to  the sea floor-except where ocean trenches cut through the sea bed, creating what is called a hadopelagic…

Siphonophore-Related to the jellyfish and corals, Siphonophore is a continuous chain of specialized polyps - individual animals that grow from one  another in an organized colony. Some in the colony are devoted to feeding, armed  with stinging cells to snag fish or invertebrates. Others are devoted to locomotion,  propelling the whole group with a continuous pumping motion while some exist only to reproduce. #Siphonophore

Oriental Flying Gurnard ( Dactyloptena orientalis )        Image Source    This deep-sea creature called the oriental flying gurnard is a flying gurnard found in the Indo-Pacific Oceans at depths    down to 100 m. Their length is up to 40 cm. The oriental flying gurnard has huge, round pectoral fins. The fins are usually    held against the body, but when threatened they can expand the ‘wings’ to scare off a predator.    Flying Gurnard ( Dactylopterus volitans )
