Astonishing Red Jellyfish and Other Creatures Were Seen in the Atlantic Ocean for the First Time

A new discovery has been made in the Atlantic Ocean by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A new type of jellyfish has been found under 700 meters below sea level. A beautifully and mesmerizing red jellyfish has captivated the internet.

A recent expedition off the coast of New England uncovered a possible new species of jellyfish, proving the value of these trips. The red jellyfish is of the Poralia species, which have around 30 tentacles and a fragile structure.

About 100 miles southeast of Nantucket, the Hydrographer Canyon is rich in ocean life. It connects shallow waters to the deep parts of the ocean and has depths that range from 1,900 feet at the shallow end up to 4,668 feet at the shelf break.

The NOAA researchers used a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) that can be deployed to depths of up to 4 kilometers (2.5 miles).

During the expedition, many creatures including ctenophores, cnidarians, crustaceans, and Actinopterygii have been observed. In addition to that, unidentified new animal families and potentially new species have been discovered.

“During the diving, along the water column, we observed over 650 individual animals including ctenophores (comb jellies), siphonophores, jellyfish, arrow worms, shrimps, larvae and other types of fish,” the NOAA scientists stated.

it’s incredible to think of how much we still don’t know about the deep ocean and how many species, like the red jellyfish, are just waiting to be discovered.

Other species were discovered while this expedition took place. They are mesmerizing also given that they are discovered just now.

It’s a well-known fact that most Hollywood films don’t exactly address reality. From cleaned entertainers to cheerful endings just, we’ve figured out how to believe it tentatively.

This time, we’re managing another big-screen wrongdoing. It ends up, the American entertainment world does barely anything to think often about precisely depicting different nations.
