Best Answer

Pelagic and Benthic are opposites

Benthic means living on the bottom

Pelagic means living in the water above the bottom

So pelagic fish make the open ocean their home. They swim continuously in open water, usually well offshore, they tend to be nomadic and do not remain in one area.
