Australian scientists have discovered more than 100 new species of animals in marine reserves off the southern coast of Tasmania, and have also photographed a dozen representative of species that are already known. The pictures were published by the Australian scientific organization Marine Biodiversity Center.
For a month, a team of many scientific-led scientific institutions from the Scientific and Applied Research Society of the State (CSIRO) examined 45 heights where deep water corals and animals live on reefs.
On the board of the Researcher's boat, scientists used special cameras with remote control to study depth up to 1,900 meters, collecting 60,000 photos and 300 hours of video.
Scientists for the first time have found many new types of crabs and lobsters, as well as chorales and molluscs. The samples were collected using a small network.
In addition, researchers found already known species, for example, the famous Horse runners up, a species of gill, endemic fish in Australian waters. The team also saw 40 species of seabirds and several species of whales and dolphins.
