The bathypelagic zone is an area of ocean located 1,000 to 4,000 meters (3,280 to 13,123 feet) below the water's surface.
So, the bathypelagic zone has no living plants, which require energy from the sun to grow.
This force, which is the result of the weight of a column of water pushing down, is so strong in the bathypelagic zone that it would crush anything with air in it.

At 1,000 m to 4,000 m (3,281 ft to 13,123 ft) beneath the ocean's surface is the bathypelagic zone.
Many fish in the bathypelagic zone possess small eyes--or no eyes at all.
ART: First, have each student do research to find information about a creature that lives in the bathypelagic zone.
The bathypelagic zone is an area of ocean located 10,000 to 40,000 miles below the water's surface.
