Researchers Discover Ghastly Sea Dong, Name It The 'Peanut Worm'

The team of researchers first released a picture of a faceless fish.

The end of a research mission targeting the oceanic abyss in Australia just revealed the discovery of even more freakish species. These sipunculid worms make a group of unsegmented worms and there are about 320 different species of such worms lurking in deep sea.

Over the month-long voyage called "Sampling the Abyss", the team of 40 scientists discovered some pretty weird organisms.

Besides, an Agricultural Costs and Marketing Commission would also be set up to ensure remunerative prices of farm produce. He said it is reprehensible that the CM is now expecting the aggrieved farmers to come to Bhopal and meet him.

In case you missed it, which you most definitely did, scientists from the Museums Victoria, Australia, recently returned from an expedition on board research vessel The Investigator.

'What can we say?

"Australia's deep sea environment is larger in size than the mainland, and until now, nearly nothing was known about life on the abyssal plain", Dr. Tim O'Hara, the expedition's Chief Scientist and Museums Victoria's Senior Curator of Marine Invertebrates, said. Its great depths, going some 4,000 meters down, also make it a hard to explore area. So far, only a small number of samples have been collected from Australia's abyss - but there is much to learn from them.

There was no immediate indication over why they had been detained or if it directly concerned their reporting from the kingdom. The measures included an unprecedented order for all Qataris resident in the three GCC countries to leave within 14 days.

He then continued by adding that research results will assist in the management and conservation of this environment.

Using multibeam sonar, the team mapped the abyss floor, which allowed them to send collecting gear such as trawling sleds down without smashing it into rocks. The mission managed to collect more than 1,000 different freaky species. "We're 100 kilometres off Australia's coast, and have found PVC pipes, cans of paints, bottles, beer cans, woodchips, and other debris from the days when steamships plied our waters".

Now that the crew has landed with its collection of specimens, a science crew is hard at work processing and photographing and preserving them for museums around the world. Our scientists went deep, ' chortled the Museum of Victoria.

Such firms sold 7.3 billion euros ($8.2 billion) worth of goods to customers in Britain a year ago , their fourth-biggest market.

The species discovered are quite freakish looking due to the fact that they adapted to living in a low to no light, freezing, very deep environment. Some of them will be displayed in an exhibit at the Melbourne Museum soon.
