However, new results from the ongoing Mid-Atlantic Ridge Ecosystems program (MAR-ECO) have revealed that these fishes may in fact be gathering at features such as ridges or seamounts to spawn. Research expeditions have also led to the discovery of as many as six fish species new to science and the collection of some unusually large deep-sea fish specimens. Click here for more.
