Bizarre Fish Living In The Deepest Part Of The Ocean

The Mariana Trench is the deepest known part of Earth’s oceans. The trench is located off the coast of Japan, and stretches for almost 1,600 miles. The average depth along the trench is 6.8 miles. This might not sound like much, but the atmospheric pressure at the bottom of the trench is 1,000 stronger than the pressure at sea level.

Despite the pressure, a plethora of fish life can be found throughout the Mariana Trench. Most of them are ancient creatures who haven’t evolved for thousands of years.
