Ocean Sea Zone division

Fishes in the light zone and fishes in darkness

Pelagic zone is the part of the open sea or ocean that is not near the coast or sea floor. While the demersal zone comprises the water that is near to (and is significantly affected by) the coast or the sea floor. The name Pelagic is derived from the Greek πέλαγος (pélagos), which might be roughly translated as "sea" but is more accurately translated as "open sea." The Pelagic Zone are divided into about five main zones. From my observation I notice that most species of Kosher fish are found in the Epipelagic zone, the fish that live in the light. These fishes of light feeds on Planktons can grow into large fish which have high value nutrients. While the fishes of darkness are usually have monstrous looking, some are blind and colourless, they feed on food drop down to their zone or go up the upper zone in the dark to feed or prey unsuspected fishes. The bathypelagic, abyssopelagic, and hadopelagic zones are very similar in character, sea creature living in those zones are unclean, tamei, unkosher not fit for human consumption. 


Epipelagic (from the surface down to around 200 m) - the illuminated surface zone; - enough light for photosynthesis. plants and animals are largely concentrated in this zone.  contain much varieties of Kosher fishes . Fish is like the type men who live in the light. Also  Tuna and shark that prey on those fishes. Note that Fish that no scale n fins; prey other fishes are unclean - Tamei


Mesopelagic (from 200 m down to around 1000 m) - the twilight zone. Some fading light penetrates this deep but insufficient for photosynthesis. The name stems from Greek μέσον, middle. - Sea creature found there are monstrous looking, such as hatchet, viper fish dragon fish, snipe eel, squid, jelly fish, siphonopores, These sea creatures living in this Zone are unclean - Tamei - Non- KosherN


Bathypelagic (from 1000 m down to around 4000 m) - almost entirely dark (with only the occasional bioluminescent, body that gives "light" organism) -  no living plants, and most animals survive by consuming the snow of detritus falling from the zones above, or (like the marine hatchetfish) by preying upon others. Marine creature found are fish, molluscs, jellies, and crustaceans. Sperm whales can dive down into this zone when hunting giant squid. Giant squid live at this depth, and here they are hunted by deep-diving sperm whales. From Greek βαθύς (bathys), deep. Sea creature are Tamei unclean - an abominationN


Abyssopelagic (from 4000 m down to above the ocean floor) - no light - pitch darkness, most creatures are blind and colourless. Greek άβυσσος (ábyssos), abyss, meaning bottomless (a holdover from the times when the deep ocean was believed to be bottomless). Sea marine found in this zone are deep water squid, Octopus, Basket star, sea pig, echinoderm, sea spider, large Shrimp (red), wingcule (echinoderm) and deep sea medusa, all these are unkosher, unclean, Tamei not fit for human consumption.N


Hadopelagic (the deep water in ocean trenches) - the name is derived from Hades, the classical Greek underworld. Zone unknown, very few species are known to live here (in the open areas). contain organisms live in hydrothermal vents in this and other zones. This Zone is inhospitable living conditions, which include near- freezing temperatures and crushing pressures.N
