Most animals that live in deep oceanic waters are

  • tertiary consumers

  • detritivores

  • primary consumers

  • secondary consumers



Benthos is the community of organisms which live on, in, or near the sea bed, also known as the benthic zone. As no light is available in this zone of sea, the energy source for deep benthic ecosystem is often organic matter from higher water column which drifts down to the depths. This dead and decaying matter sustains the benthic organisms, and therefore, most organisms in benthic zone i.e., in deep oceanic waters, are scavengers or detritivores.
