Deeper than 200 meters, sunlight begins to vanish. Except in polar waters, the distinction in temperature between the euphotic, or sunlit, zone close to the floor and the deep sea could be dramatic because of thermoclines, or the separation of water layers of differing temperatures. First, advances in observational gear such as fiber optics that use LED gentle and low gentle cameras has increased our understanding of the behaviors and characteristics of deep sea creatures of their pure habitat.

This checklist highlights five of my favourite denizens of the deep, from the plethora of otherworldly creatures that call the Mariana … Read More
