This massive fish species was somehow only just discovered

new fish species

Researchers regularly remind us that the world's oceans are still hiding some truly remarkable secrets, but when we imagine new species of ocean life it's usually tucked away in the crushing depths, or so tiny that we somehow didn't notice it up until now.

It's a messy, oftentimes dangerous job that offers no guarantees, and for every man who makes his fortune from a fishing net there seems to be just as many who come up empty handed.

antarctica iceberg

Scientists are the public in general have been keeping a very close eye on the crisis unfolding on the Larsen C ice shelf for months. A massive crack in the shelf has threatened to unleash a state-sized chunk of ice into the ocean for a long time, but a recent increase in the speed of the cracking (called "calving") captured the attention of the world.
