Demersal Fish

 

Demersal fish are fish that live and feed on or near the bottom of water bodies, in contrast with pelagic fish, which live in the pelagic zone of oceans and lakes. Examples of demersal fish species include cod, haddock, and flatfish such as turbot and halibut. Demersal fish can be divided into two main types: strictly benthic fish which can rest on the seafloor, and benthopelagic fish which can float in the water column just above the seafloor.
