Abiotic and Biotic factors

Abiotic factors of the deep ocean include little to no light, high pressure, cold temperatures, and low oxygen.

In the deep ocean, the biotic factors are detritus, pelagic fish and other creatures that have evolved from the ocean floor. Detritus is the decaying organisms that once lived in the upper level of the ocean floor.
