Hundreds of thousands of viruses in oceans

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The oceans contain almost 200,000 different viral populations, according to the latest count.

Marine viruses were found from the surface down to 4,000m deep and from the North to the South Pole.

Though most are harmless to humans, they can infect marine life, including whales and crustaceans.

And scientists are only just starting to understand how these tiny organisms play a role in the life and chemistry of the seas.

This planet belongs to viruses. They are the landlord, and we are bad tenants.
