Water Movement In The Deep Sea

In the deep sea, there aren't currents or fast moving sections of water. The gyre movements move the water but don't have a huge affect on organism living in the deep sea.

Characteristics Of An Ecosystem

Abiotic Factors

Because the deep sea is so deep, no sunlight is able to reach it which makes the temperature very cold. Also because the deep sea is so deep, it makes the water pressure and the density of the water extremely high because of all of the weight being put on it by the water above.

Biotic Factors

Some biotic factors in the deep sea include Bacteria, Animal, Fungi and other living organisms.

Invasive Species

An invasive species of the deep sea are Limpets.

Resources In The Deep Sea

Some resources that can be found in the deep sea are oil, Platinum and other valuable substances.

Human Impact

humans impact the deep sea when they pollute into the ocean. Oil spills are another big factor in human impact on the deep sea.

What Can Be Done To Minimize Human Impact

To minimize human impact on the deep sea, people can be more careful and not throw trash into the oceans. Companies can also do a better job of being careful of how they transport goods to make sure that they are keeping the ocean as clean as possible.

What To Take

While going down to the midnight zone you should bring a couple of days worth of clothes, cameras, food and clean water that would be able to last multiple days.
