Did you know that the vast majority of the ocean remains unexplored? In fact, 95% of the earth’s water still remains a mystery to us. So it is not surprising that the America’s Ocean Exploration Team discovered new species during the team’s latest deep sea exploration.
The America’s Ocean Exploration Team co-led by Andrea Quattrini dived into the Puerto Rico Trench. The trench is the deepest in the Atlantic Ocean, its depths reaches up to 8,800 m and extending for over 800 km. The team were able to discover new creatures. These creatures were alien-looking and most of them were never seen by man before the expedition.
The alien-looking deep sea dwelling animals are so rare that some of them haven’t been named yet. In total, the team made 12 dives and recorded approximately 100 species of fish, 50 species of deep-water corals, and hundreds of invertebrates.
