Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure exerted by a fluid due to its weight. The buoyancy force on a body fully immersed in a static fluid is attributable to the pressure, summed (integrated) over the body's surface. The pressure is isotropic in that case - it acts in all directions equally. That is not true in the case of fluid flow.
