Introduction. The deep ocean is generally poor in food availability, and many animals living on continental shelves or slopes rely on organic matter originating from land or shallow waters (Gooday et al., , Herring, ).The amount of organic matter exhibits large seasonal variations that are driven by events such as phytoplankton blooms (Tyler, , Gooday et al., Cited by: 1.
