Abyss

Life in the cold, deep oceans!

In the deepest and coldest areas of the oceans of the world, you will find someone of the weirdest and wonderful fish on earth. They all have special adaptions to allow them to survive the chills and darkness found in The Abyss

A sample of species

Spider crab (Maja squinado) undertakes some form of migration where they move in great numbers (presumably as a defence against predators) into deeper water, often covering tens of miles over several months! They are relatives to the gigantic Japanese spider crab which can grow to over 3.7m!

Lumpsucker (Cyclopterus lumpus) is found in the Arctic and on both sides of the North Atlantic. It is a large Lumpsucker and attains a maximum length and weight of about 60 centimetres (2 feet) and 5 to 6 kilograms (11–13 pounds).
