Worms, cams, sponge, snails etc are some of the benthic organisms that live near marine sedimentary environments such as rocky shores, coral reef, deep seas. The term benthos is a Greek word which means “depths of the sea” that refers to the organisms that live near bottom of the sea.Author(s): Yuxin Ma
