World's largest fish breeding ground discovered

(CNN) A breeding colony of 60 million fish has been discovered in Antarctica's ice-covered Weddell Sea -- a unique and previously unknown ecosystem that covers an area the size of Malta.

 

The fascinating find shows how little is known about the ocean depths.
The vast colony, believed to be the world's largest, is home to the remarkable icefish (Neopagetopsis ionah), which has a see-through skull and transparent blood. Icefish are the only vertebrates to have no red blood cells.

Who the hell looks at a measurement and goes, “Aye. That’s the size of Malta, all right.”

More specifically, who looks at 60,000,000 ****ing fish and thinks, “That orgy’s the size of Malta.”
