In the deepest point of the Indian Ocean live fish from the Liparidae family are now seen for the first time.
British experts descended to a depth of about 7.1 meters in the Indian Ocean and saw rare creatures left without words. During the eight-hour mission, photographs of creatures that are presumed to be new and so far unseen have been made.
As a leading expert on marine ecology at the University of Newcastle, Dr. Alan Jamison needed two and a half hours to reach the bottom of the ocean in one of the world's most isolated points 100 nautical miles off the island of Bali. The expedition was led by the American Viktor Veskovo, and they traveled to the bottom in a submarine for two and passed more than 7,192 meters.
"We do not often see something so unusual that leaves us without words," said Jamison for Mirror.
For the first time, human beings have seen fish from the Liparodae family. Unfortunately, during the expedition, samples of artificial fibers and plastics were found, which means that human-induced pollution has reached the most isolated points on our planet.
