Food is scarce in much of the deep sea in part because photosynthesis only takes place at the oceans surface where theres sunlight. Seep communities are more dispersed in areas where hydrocarbons particularly methane or other natural gases are percolating up through deep-sea sediments. Some of the most amazing adaptations are from ocean animals like sharks jellies starfish stingrays and dolphins.
