The Marina Trench And what lives at thr bottom of it?

We know the Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the ocean, we still don't really know what's down there, or what lives down there.

We have seen large crustrations and some fish not at the bottom at challenger deep but near the middle.

And this dumbo octopus discovered in the Mariana Trench

But what we know is down there is frightening, Small crustaceans that live in the Mariana and Kermadec trenches were found to be contaminated with 50 times more toxigc chemicals than crabs that survive in heavily polluted rivers in China, which is scary to think about for the creatures down there

Yet even though we've discovered much there's still much we don't know, we don't know what really lives down there

This lantern jellyfish creature wasn't discovered too long ago
They know this is an anglerfish, but they can't even classified what type of anglerfish, it's different from all the others, they don't even know what species of angler fish it is
They don't even know what the heck this reddish fish is, they have a picture but can't even classify it as a species they know

It's obvious to see while we know a few things it's only a small fraction compared to the things we don't know...
