What are three main zones of the open ocean?
Whales, herring, tuna, giant squid, and angler fish live in this deep ocean area.
there are three major zones , Surface Zone, Thermocline Zone, The Deep Zone
Euphotic zone, bathyal zone and abyssal zone.
The surface zone, The transition zone,and the deep zone
sunlight zone twilight zone and midnight zone
The open ocean zone is also referred to as the pelagic zone. Facts of the area include that it is everything in the ocean except the coastal areas. It is the top sunlit la…yer of the ocean and is the marine ecosystem's largest area.
The deepest, darkest area of the ocean beyond the edge of the continental shelf. Open ocean is the part of an ocean where there is no land within a reasonable distance.
rain forest, Savannah, and desert
Any water in the sea that is not close to the bottom is in the pelagic zone (meaning "Open Sea"). The pelagic zone occupies 1,370 million cubic kilometres (330 million cubic m…iles) and has a vertical range up to 11 kilometres (6.8 miles). Fish that live in the pelagic zone are called pelagic fish. Pelagic life decreases with increasing depth. It is affected by light levels, pressure, temperature, salinity and the supply of dissolved oxygen & nutrients. Sharks, fish, whales, dolphins, plankton, krill, squid, swordfish, and cuttlefish are some of the vast amount of species found in the open-ocean. Different types of creatures inhabit different "zones" of the ocean layers. Click the Wikipedia link below for more information.
The three main producers in the ocean are Seaweed, Seagrass, and Kelp.
Most jellyfsh do, depending on the type you are researching. Good luck finding the answer =)
Animals in the open ocean are torpedo shaped for speed and in particular, Flying Fish actually jump out of the water to disconcert it's predator, the tuna and changes at …a 90 degree angle so it cannot be followed, after which, it jumps back into the water. Other animals that are slow, adapt by being transparent, like jellies. Still others adapt by being super tiny, practically invisible, which are plankton both phytoplankton and zooplankton. Sea turtles adapt by being big and having a shell. All open ocean animals have to adapt to being summerged in sea water, which is salty. Water beathing animals use gills and sharks in particular are able to move between different pressure waters because their blood has the same salinity of the ocean, therefore they can travel to the depths or the surface, without an air sac. On the other hand, animals with lungs, like whales are adapted to the open ocean because they can hold their breath a long time, they experience brachiocardia, the slowing the their heartbeats, and they have increased storage of oxygen in their muscles, which allows them to hold their breath for up to 30 minutes. Other adaptations fish have has to do with their swimming muscles; there are two kinds: white and red. The white muscles are low in oxygen and designed for moving gently over long distances. The red muscles have a high content of oxygen and are able to provide the fish with speeding bursts, either for hunting or running from a predator.
The tree zones of the ocean is sunlight, twilight, and midnight. They are also called: euphotic, disphotic, and aphotic. The three land zones are polar, temperate, and tropica…l.
It is a result of differences in latitude and thus the angle of heating.

The surface mixed zone, transition zone, and deep zone. But, the pyncnocline and thermocline are also phases of them. And there is the intertidal zone, the neritic zone, and… the open-ocean zone. HOPE THIS HELPED YOUR STUPID BRAIN! --HELGA
The first layer is the surface zone. The second is thermocline and third is deep zone.
