Scientists from the University of Aberdeen have uncovered a new species of fish near New Zealand.

The animal was found on a voyage to one of the deepest points on the planet.

During seven days of ocean sampling, near the Kermadec Islands, at depths of between 1-6.5km, the group took over 6500 photographs of deep sea fish and snapped around 100 fish.

9/10 ths of the Oceans are still unexplored,so there must be a few 100's of new species still undiscovered.

More likely to be in the hundreds of thousands or up to a few million...

Not much telling what they will find down there one day or what will find them.

I'd be willing to bet that it will never be anything too out of the ordinary. All in the realm of nature and no big mythical beasties or anything similar.
