Faceless fish discovered

June 8, 2017

An international team of scientists on a deep sea research voyage have found some rather strange creatures, including a “faceless” fish.

They’ve been using special cameras to look deep underwater off the coast of eastern Australia, around 4,000m below the surface.

At this depth, there’s huge pressure, no light and it’s extremely cold so animals there have evolved and found different ways to survive.
Chief scientist Tim O’Hara says it’s “the most unexplored environment on Earth”.

His team say that around one-third of what they’ve found are new species.
The faceless fish doesn’t have any eyes, you can’t see its nose, and its mouth is found underneath its body.

@taniska,
Fish do, in fact, have nostrils. The human nose is used for 2 functions: breathing and smelling. The gills of fish let them breathe but fish still need to smell. The nose of a fish let them smell the scent of other fish and lets them detect molecules in the water. On the contrary, the gills of a fish let them filter salt out of the water they drink and oxygen out of the water they take in, letting them breathe.
