Life in the Deep Sea

The deep sea is one of the few remaining under-explored regions of the world, explains Steven Haddock of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The little we already know tells us that:

  • our ideas of life in these waters are mostly misconceptions
  • climate change is troublesome for sea creatures who live within a specific temperature range
  • space biology (exobiology) can learn from the marine organisms that don’t need light or oxygen to survive
  • different species adapted to deep sea life in unique ways over time
