hadopelagic zone
The bottom-most layer of the oceanic zone, lying below the abyssopelagic zone at depths greater than about 6000 meters (19,680 feet).

A reference to the deep water in ocean trenches. The name is derived from Hades, the classical Greek underworld. This zone is 90% unknown and very few species are known to live here (in the open areas); however, many organisms live in hydrothermal vents in this and other zones.
