DEEP CORAL DIVERSITY AT EMPEROR SEAMOUNT
Some of the Ocean’s most iconic and alien-looking species are found in the Bathyal zone, 800 to 4000 meters deep. Known as the midnight zone due to its complete darkness, strange bioluminescent organisms, beings with huge teeth, and other bizarre adaptations make this little to no light habitat home. The obscurity of the bathyal zone has made it one of the least well-known sectors of the ocean, something that Dr. Les Watling from the University of Hawaii and his research team will strive to overcome during their summer expedition on Falkor.
