Led by Museum Victoria, scientists have mapped the seabed of two parks never visited by man. They discovered new marine specimens unknown to science

The scientists brought back with them many specimens including a blind eel. Totally unknown to science, this eel was found 5 km deep where there is little light. This makes her eyes undeveloped and her skin transparent. The female eel gives birth to live baby fish, a rare occurrence among fish.

During this 11,000 km trip, the researchers were able to map for the first time the seabed of the Cocos Islands, located 2,750 km northwest of Perth. There they discovered huge, flat-topped, massive sea mountains bordered by volcanic cones, ridges and rays formed by sand avalanches.
