Abstract

Aquanauts to open new era in ocean exploration soon numerou s the mid-water fishes and crustaceans are by actually counting them, instead of relying on trapping them in nets hauled up New refinements of old ocean exploration techniques could open a fro m the surface ships. Scientists have long suspected that many new era in sea exploration next summer, when aquanaut s descend in animals simply got out of the way of nets and that their true numbers a one-person submersible to get the first extended close look at the were always underestimated through this technique. By actually earth's least-known region — th e lightless portion of the sea between counting the animals, the researchers will be able to determine the the surface and the bottom. degree of accuracy involved in net hauling. While a variety of undersea vehicles have been used since 1934, A "slurp gun," which sucks in animals through a tube into a when two men in a small spherical chamber called a bathysphere container, will be used to capture midwater gelatinous zooplankton were lowered into the sea off Bermuda, next summer's venture will and fish.
