I thought this was kind of cool, a testament to the bizarre beauty and diversity of our sea creatures, with a song that compliments the flow of life down there.
The second vid is the music one, and the first vid shows some of the unique marine life and describes the census effort and what it means to have a list of the creatures that occupy our seas.
The census of marine life has completed the most comprehensive list of species that live in 25 different ocean bodies from all over the world.

All the info has been consolidated to one source. What a great learning tool! The study found that most of the known and larger species we are familiar with only make up 2% of the diversity. Single cell organisms and microscopic algea are the most wide spread.

Japan and Australia waters have the most diverse populations, with an average of over 33,000 species.

So we may get some more "zilla" creatures like seahorsezilla, sharkzilla or clamzilla.

But seriously, yes it is sad such experiments continue and many probably think," yea it's the ocean, plenty big enough to soak up a little nuclear testing."
Out of sight out of mind....

Hopefully bringing these reports and pictures of the ocean and it's inhabitants to the public, connects more people to the efforts for preservation of this system.

Imagine the creatures of the deep become zilla size. They already look so alien to us.

Why they dont test the nuke in space ? At least "almost nothing" live there.
