There is a great variety of sea life swimming in Earth's oceans, but according to the National Ocean Service, more than 90% of the species living in them are not yet classified.

Who remembers that statistic that by 2050, all the fish in the ocean would be gone? How would that be possible if we haven't discovered 90% of all fish in the ocean?!

Of that remaining 90%, only about 1% of the uncharacterized species are likely to be "large". This is an amazing find.

You guys know there’s a big quake coming right? Anniversary of the 9.0 is next month and in 2011 one month before the quake they too found a big oarfish the weeks leading up to it. History repeats and this time it’s going to be way larger, stronger and longer. More powerful.

@wickedcabinboy so you can’t explain it? Can you explain why evolution was invented to promote racism, and even had a black boy in a cage in the USA to show people who we “evolved” from. I’m sure your brand of wisdom can explain.
wickedcabinboy 12 days ago
@Captain Obvious!!! - your sarcasm is noted. I suspect your biology lessons came from your pastor. Were you interested in anything more than a pointless argument you wouldn't be attempting to learn biology from strangers in a US-first comment section. It is beyond my power to fix your brand of stupid.

@wickedcabinboy you know, tell me. How can a fish evolve to a land animal? Do the gills go out first? Or fins?
wickedcabinboy 12 days ago
@Captain Obvious!!! - It would seem you're unfamiliar with basic evolutionary biology.

@wickedcabinboy who decides that? If an animal has half leg and half wing? How can it survive? Or do animals evolve over night?
