      I think the most exciting part for me is the level of unknown. There is so much we don’t know about the deep sea and the majority of it has never been studied. Deep sea researchers are constantly discovering new weird and wonderful species and the more we discover the more we realise how little we actually know. The deep sea really is the final frontier of biological exploration!
