Even on the situation so far below the surface is more rough and the pressure is 50 times greater than on earth, so is koralhaven incredibly diverse. There is a wide range of different types of corals that live there.

Among the many corals, which thrive in the complex ecosystem, include: blomkålskoral, søliljer and anemones.

the Discoveries on the ocean floor require special equipment. And also to this discovery had deep-sea cameras on remotely operated vehicles be used. But this kind of equipment is very expensive and not always to get fingers in.

Why did the researchers from University College London, Zoological Society of London and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources their own homemade dybvandsmaskiner.

- even Though we know so little about the ocean floor, so depends on the greenlandic economy of a small number of fisheries using the trawl on the seabed. We hope that studies like this will increase our understanding of conditions and contribute to sustainable fisheries management, " he concludes.
