A group of deep blue seafloor dwellers are making their mark on the world in 2019.
From the deep blue waters of the South Pacific to the deep black waters of Antarctica, these are some of the most diverse species of deep sea life to ever exist on earth.
But there’s a catch.
Deep blue marine life can’t live on land, which means it’s difficult to catch them.
But the group is making a bid to change that.
Their name is “Deep Blue Sea” and the name has been chosen to honour the ocean’s most diverse creatures.
Deep Blue Life is made up of 15 deep blue marine species, ranging from the colourful “sea cow” to the more mundane “sea sponge”.
It’s made up by a mix of whales, seals, rays and corals, and can reach up to 40 metres (131 feet) in length.
They can live for up to 15 years and can even reproduce with their partners.
“When we first met, I didn’t think about it.
But after a couple of weeks, I was like, ‘I have to talk to you,'” says Raela Bonta, a research assistant at the University of Sydney’s Marine and Antarctic Laboratory (MASL) who is part of the Deep Blue Species Group.
“I’ve been doing marine biology for a long time and I’ve never seen anything like this.”
The group’s mission is to identify and document marine life that are found nowhere else on the planet.
“If you think about this as a species, it’s more of a community than an individual,” says Bontam.
“There are so many different species, and there are a lot of different species that live together in the same environment.”
You can’t go into the ocean, but you can go into these habitats where there are lots of other species and they can live together.
So, it means we have to work together.
“Deep Blue Sea is a collaborative effort between the MASL, the Marine Mammal Society, the Ocean University of Australia (OUA) and the Department of Ocean Sciences.
In 2019, the group will be releasing a set of images of their species to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the birth of their scientific name.
It will be a great opportunity for the public to learn more about the diversity of the deep sea and the impact of the marine ecosystem on our planet.
“This is like a dark grey ocean, which makes it so difficult to see the colour of the water, but we can see what’s happening below.” “
It’s so deep, you can’t even see the surface,” Bontan says.
“This is like a dark grey ocean, which makes it so difficult to see the colour of the water, but we can see what’s happening below.”
Bontas research team has been studying the deep ocean for years, but they’ve never been able to capture images of its colour, or even its size.
This year, they’ll be using the International Deep Sea Capture Program (IDSP) to document the deep dark sea.
This is where a team of scientists, including Bont, will use sonar, camera traps, and sonar waves to collect samples of the depths of the dark sea at depths of up to 200 kilometres (124 miles).
The IDSP is a partnership between the Ocean Research Centre (ORC) in Japan and the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Singapore.
Bont says that the deep darkness is a result of the pressure of the ocean at different depths, which causes the waves to be pulled apart by the water.
The resulting wave is then stretched and stretched until it gets to the point where it breaks up into tiny pieces.
“In the deep, the waves break up very quickly,” she says.
Bons research team is planning to capture data from the IDSP next year.
The deep dark waters of deep ocean are often described as “deep” because the water is dark and there is no light, which explains why they are often called “dark.”
“When you go to the sea you see that you are in the dark,” Bons says.
There are also other conditions that affect the depth of the black sea, including currents, temperature and pressure.
Bounta says that although there are some good ways to observe the deep waters, there’s also a lot that can’t be observed.
“The deep is really very important,” she explains.
“For example, the temperature and the pressure are very important.
Deep blue life will also be on display at the Deep Sea Research Institute (DSRI) in Perth, Australia, which is a research centre focused on studying the biology and ecology of deep water habitats.”
And when the temperature is low, you have to rely on your instruments to measure pressure.”
