The depths of the ocean are some of the most amazing parts of the world. Many wonders lie in these depths, waiting for them to be found by us. This is a story about such an amazing sighting of a new species of animal that was found during a deep-sea exploration.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or simply ‘NOAA’ is an Ocean Exploration organization. They have made some of the most amazing discoveries of the ocean so far. And once again they made a discovery, by one of their interns in a deep-sea dive project on ocean life. Scroll down to read more about this amazing discovery.More info & Media courtesy: NOAA
This is a very beautiful Jellyfish which is not been identified or found in any document so far. Around 2,300 feet below the surface, the Deep Discoverer, which is a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), identified this red organism.
Quinn Girasek was an intern at NOAA and it was during her project. The ROV came across this Jellyfish in the deep scattering layer of the Atlantic Ocean’s Gulf Stream. These areas have not been explored before. And this is a very special moment for this intern to discover a new species during her project.
The scattering layer is a depth where the sound waves get scattered due to the contact of mesopelagic and other organisms. In these uncharted waters, Girasek witnessed many organisms that were hard to identify and most of them are most likely to be unidentified.
