Scientists discover new marine species under the Indian Ocean
The Hydrothermal vents are situated at 1,243 miles southeast of Madagascar and are called the Longqi vents, or better known as Dragon Breath. Now that is something interesting to see! Most of these species are believed to prosper only in these vents, the Longqi vents since it’s the first time discovered by mankind. However, it’s not confirmed whether they can be found somewhere else.
In the study published in the nature research journal of Scientific Reports, it is stated that after the initial investigations of the hydrothermal vents during the late 1970’s, in the eastern Pacific, more than 250 active vents have been found throughout the world, and more than 400 new marine species have been discovered from these environments from at least 11 biogeographic provinces.
