World's deepest octopus caught on camera

May 30, 2020 13:05 IST

UK Scientist Dr Alan Jamieson has captured the world's deepest octopus on camera. Discovered 7,000 metres down in the Java Trench, on the floor of the Indian ocean, it is believed to be a "Dumbo" octopus species. Dr Jamieson's equipment called 'lander' filmed two octopuses - one on a drop to 5,760 metres and a second around 6,957 metres. The previous deepest reliable sighting was at 5,145 metres down. The discovery shows that octopuses can find suitable habitat across at least 99% of the global seafloor.
