|The Deep Sea|
Event Type: Community Services|
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
With an average depth of two miles, the vast majority of ocean lies within a zone where light is either extremely limited or altogether absent. This zone, known as the Deep Sea, is perpetually cold, dark, and under immense pressure from the weight of the water above. The fish found here have evolved special adaptations to survive in this harsh environment, including bioluminescence, fearsome teeth, extendable jaws and stomachs, a watery composition, and even parasitic sexual reproduction. Learn about this extreme environment and the unusual animals that live within its depths with Marianne McNamara, Assistant Professor of Biology and Oceanography at Suffolk Community College.
