Ocean contains some of the biggest mysteries of earth and it’s proven to be the case one more time as a group of scientists recently found a ‘faceless fish’ during their expedition to Australia’s eastern abyss.
The group of scientists found the fish at around 4,000 meters below the ocean after it was seen once in history back in 1873. At the time, a group of pioneering scientific crew of HMS Challenger off Papua New Guinea.
In an official statement, Tim O’Hara, the chief scientist of the mission said, “It hasn’t got any eyes or a visible nose and its mouth is underneath.”
However, the latest finding isn’t highly surprising given that the fish and other creatures living so far below the ocean often use light produced by their own through process of bioluminescence.
The group of scientists also discovered several other creatures which they are expecting will help to understand the deep sea habitat in the coming years. O’Hara continued, “This will assist in the conservation and management of Australia’s deep sea habitat and will help to protect it from the impacts of climate change, pollution and other human activity.”
