CHILE - PACIFIC - SPECII NOI


February 16, 2024, Valparaiso, Chile: Strange new species discovered on underwater 'seamounts' near Chile with the help of a deep-diving sea robot. These new creatures were discovered thousands of feet under the Pacific. The scientists aboard a recent Schmidt Ocean Institute expedition believe they have discovered more than 100 new species living on seamounts off the coast of Chile, including deep-sea corals, glass sponges, sea urchins, amphipods, and squat lobsters. The scientists on the expedition found that each seamount hosted distinct ecosystems, including thriving deep-sea coral reefs and sponge gardens, indicating the seamounts support numerous vulnerable marine habitats.
