1 Answer

  • Best Answer

    Neritic Zone: Shallow water

    Photic zone: Deepwater (almost no light for photosynthesis)

    Answer: I think chemosynthesis will occur at photic zones

    Rationale: Plants cannot live in photic zones (due to lack of light) so they cannot create O2 for the animals. Thus, the fish will have to resort to bacteria for nutrients, hence chemosynthesis
