Le grand bleu

“Benthic” is a name given to marine species that live on
the ocean floor. Benthic organisms adapt to seabed nature.
Some evolve to live on or near the sandy bottom (Ray).
Others live attached to rocks (Starfish). "Pelagic" is
a name given to marine species that live in open water.
Pelagic organisms adapt to water currents, some swim
actively (Atlantic mackerel, Gilthead), they belong to the
Nekton. Others drift, composing the Plankton. Pelagic fish
have blue-green backs, which makes them invisible by
aerial predators, and from below, marine predators mix up their
silvery belly and the surface. This is known as “Counter Shading”.
