Make sure to bring extra clothes after your fun diving in the deep sea!!!

Look forward to...

The deep sea is the lowest layer in the ocean existing below the thermocline and above the seabed, at a depth of 1000 fathoms (1800 m) or more.


What to expect:

>Deep sea fishes such as flashlight fish, cookiecutter shark, bristlemouths, angler fish, and viper fish.

>Endangered species such as blue hake, and spiny eel.

>If lucky, there might also be sunken ships.

>Ancient things; treasures and furniture.


Many deep-sea fish are bioluminescent, with extremely large eyes adapted to the dark. Bioluminescent organisms are capable of producing light biologically through the agitation of molecules of luciferin, which then produce light.

All About Science

Currents exist at all depth in the ocean. In the same region, two or more currents flow in different directions at different depths. Ocean currents are driven by two forces, the sun and the rotation of earth. Currents in the deep ocean exist because of the changes of density in sea water occurring at the surfaces.
