According to researchers and scientists, only 5-7 percent of the ocean floor has been mapped and explored, and only 0.5 percent of the ocean itself. In other words, 95.5 percent of the ocean is unexplored! This is truly amazing, considering that the ocean is one of the most important ecosystems on our planet. It provides a home for so many creatures and helps to regulate the Earth’s climate. The ocean remains a mysterious place with many weird fish species that are yet to be found in the deepest parts of the ocean.
It’s no wonder that scientists believe there is so much more to learn about the ocean and all of the life within it. The following 17 fish species are only some that have been discovered in our oceans and they are as alien-looking as anything you could find anywhere else.
