Still Waters

Three new species of fish have been discovered living in what scientists describe as one of the deepest places on Earth.

The “jelly-like” snailfish, found more than 23,000ft below the ocean surface, are part of the Liparidae family and, according to the team of researchers who conducted the expedition, do not conform to the stereotypical image of what a deep-sea fish should look like.

The team found the new species living in the Atacama Trench, a 3,670-mile groove on the seafloor that runs along the Pacific coast of South America.

The fish are described as small – about 12in long – translucent and do not have scales.

It is all relative, as Mr. Einstein once said.
