But they're cool! Imagine - in just *one* trip they found over 500 new species of fish alone! What could more expeditions turn up? I mean, this is just off the coast of Australia & New Zealand... scientists could find so much more in other ocean areas.

Just amazing!

I love this. We can't even begin to imagine the amount of different species nature spawned.
