news-nature: Fish Filmed at Record Depth


Fish Filmed at Record Depth

Researchers exploring the depths of the Mariana Trench recently set the record for deepest fish ever filmed—and then broke the record during the same study. The two newly discovered species of snailfish were filmed by a team from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland using several remotely controlled submersibles. The second fish was filmed more than five miles below the surface—a depth of 8,145 meters. Researchers say the fish is very fragile and does not like look like any known species. More… Discuss

A female Black Seadevil has been captured on video in what researchers say are the first images of their kind. The grotesque creature, a type of anglerfish, was recorded off the coast of California at a depth of approximately 1,900 feet (579 m) by a remotely operated vehicle controlled by scientists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The elusive fish—known for using a “lure” suspended over its mouth to attract prey—was spotted during a midwater transect, an exercise intended to catalog all species encountered at a particular depth.

health: One Kiss Carries 80 Million Bacteria


One Kiss Carries 80 Million Bacteria

This latest research may make you think twice before locking lips with anyone. The mouth is home to tens of millions of bacteria, and just one 10-second kiss can transfer as many as 80 million of them. The good news, if you want to call it that, is that while bacteria in the saliva seem to change quickly following a kiss, populations on the tongue remain more stable. This finding is important to researchers, as it could help with the development of bacterial therapies and treatments. More… Discuss
