When the trend of increasing TMAO in bony fishes with depth is extrapolated to hadal depths, the point at which the fishes would become isosmotic (osmoconforming) with seawater is 8000-8500 m, coinciding nicely with the maximum depth of fish from database records and observational data.

Although research on the subject is scant, sponges--unlike terrestrial organisms--are thought to be isosmotic with their surroundings (e.
The salinity of the isosmotic point has been associated with better conditions for growth of marine aquatic crustaceans as a result of the supposed physiological comfort and lower energy expenditure with osmoregulatory activity (Silva et al.
Accordingly, Kalber and Costlow (1966) found that zoeae regulate their hemolymph hyperosmotically to external salinities below 30 ppt and are isosmotic or slightly hypoosmotie at higher salinities.
