In a new research, a scientist has suggested that at least three million tons of fishlike creatures could theoretically live and breathe under Jupiter’s moon Europa’s global ocean.
Below its icy crust, Europa is believed to host a global ocean up to a hundred miles (160 kilometers) deep, with no land to speak of at the surface.
The extraterrestrial ocean is currently being fed more than a hundred times more oxygen than previous models had suggested, according to provocative new research.
That amount of oxygen would be enough to support more than just microscopic life-forms, and at least three million tons of fishlike creatures could theoretically live and breathe on Europa, according to Greenberg.
This cycle of “repaving” would explain the young look of the surface ice—and would open the door for oxygen at the surface to permeate the subsurface ocean
Drilling Down to Alien Oceans
Some of the most interesting places in our solar system are also the most difficult to reach. Areas hidden under thick layers of ice such as the polar caps of Mars, Saturn’s moon Enceladus and Jupiter’s moon Europa are prime examples. Drilling through ice on Earth is complicated enough, but on another world the task becomes almost impossible.

Well if we do that to another planet... then we deserve to have it done to us.
All of those people who thinks it ok to fly around the universe killing, eating, and enslaving the indiginous life deserves to have that as their life and death.
I am going to go out on a limb and say it is inhabited by none other than the Crab People. Look like crab, talk like people. Crab People, Crab People.
