Fish Found in Extreme Spot Beneath Antarctic Ice Shelf | Discovery

In a cold and dark underwater world, where a never-ending rain of rocks keeps the seafloor barren, researchers were startled to find fish, crustaceans and jellyfish investigating a submersible camera after drilling through nearly 2,500 feet (740 meters) of Antarctic ice.

A remotely operated camera revealed the curious fish and amphipods, a type of crustacean that thrives in the ocean’s harshest environments. For these translucent pink fish, which are about 8 inches (20 centimeters) long, this location is the farthest south they have ever been found, expedition scientists said.
