Scientists probe deep sea secrets
MetadataShow full item record
New facts about marine life are enabling scientists to locate some of the oceans's most ecologically and biologically significant areas in the planet's most remote places. For the first time, the world ocean, including its international waters, come under scientific scrutiny, combining new facts about the distribution, migration routes and reproductive, nesting and nursing grounds of many threatened species, such as tuna, sharks, turtles and whales. The Global Ocean Biodiversity Initiative has been engaged in compiling and processing the new data.
