The hadal zone , also known as the hadopelagic zone and trench zone, is the delineation for the deepest trenches in the ocean
Littoral zone
The littoral zone is the part of a sea, lake or river that is close to the shore
neretic zone
The neritic zone is the relatively shallow part of the ocean above the drop-off of the continental shelf, approximately 200 metres in depth
oceanic zone
The oceanic zone begins in the area off shore where the water measures 200 meters deep or deeper
zooxanthellae
Zooxanthellae are single-celled protozoans that are able to live in symbiosis with certain marine invertebrates
pressure
Pressure is the force applied perpendicular to the surface of an object per unit area over which that force is distributed
