ABSTRACT
The article reports on the discovery of scientists in New Zealand when they studied marine life in the Ross Sea, off the coast of Antartica. A team of 26 scientists from New Zealand spent five weeks studying the said sea. They have reportedly discovered more than 30,000 specimens that include a number of fish and mollusk species that are new to them. They also found giant stalked crinoids about 3 feet tall and giant starfish that are 2 feet wide.
