Bathypelagic - the water column at depths of 200-500 to 3000 m, corresponding to the bathyal zone, an intermediate deep pelagic zone between the surface zone and the abyssopelagic zone; home to a particular complex of bathypelagic organisms. Among the sediment-forming planktonic organisms, the bathypelagic zone is home to radiolarians and foraminifera.
