Relating to or living in or on oceanic waters. The pelagic zone of the ocean begins at the low tide mark and includes the entire oceanic water column. The pelagic ecosystem is largely dependent on the phytoplankton inhabiting the upper, sunlit regions, where most ocean organisms live. Biodiversity decreases sharply in the unlit zones where water pressure is high, temperatures are cold, and food sources scarce. Pelagic waters are divided, in descending order, into the epipelagic, mesopelagic, bathypelagic, abyssopelagic, and hadopelagic zones .

The uppermost part of the oceanic zone, lying above the mesopelagic zone , that receives enough sunlight to allow photosynthesis. The epipelagic zone can reach depths of about 200 m (656 ft) in tropical and subtropical latitudes and about 100 m (328 ft) in higher latitudes or where upwellings or other conditions cause turbidity. In general, the clearer the water, the deeper the epipelagic layer at that location. The epipelagic zone is more abundant in marine life than the lower zones; in particular, phytoplankton cannot live at any lower depths. &diamf3; The epipelagic zone is divided into the neritic epipelagic zone , which lies over the continental shelf, and the oceanic epipelagic zone , which is the upper layer of water in the part of the open ocean that is not over the continental shelf.
