According to the 1st Census of Marine Life, which took 10 years to complete, there is more range of diversity of life in ocean, than previously known.
With the release of 1st Census of Marine life tomorrow, the grand ambitious project will be complete. To provide the evidence of all the species of animals and plants, which live in the sea, this report is the first attempt.
In the course of this survey, a lot of new animals and plant species were discovered like giant sea spiders, which are the size of dinner plate, a blind lobster etc.
The scientists have revealed the existence of more than 6000 new species, during the census all over the world. They have further predicted that under the waves, they may be another 750,000 species, which have not been discovered yet.
Unless the scientists conduct one more census, they will not be able to catalogue the complete animals and plant species in the sea.
The report has issued a warning about the devastation of the plant and animal species in the sea due to the humans. It is saying that due to fishing and pollution caused by humans, many species are in danger zone.
