How do fish in the Southern Ocean keep from freezing?


Ecological Studies of Benthic Invertebrates

As for the notothenioid fishes, the benthic invertebrates if the Sub-Antarctic and South Temperate Zone have been understudied when compared with High-Antarctic species. Benthic invertebrates will be a significant component of the organisms collected by bottom trawling. Our team of invertebrate biologists will study these organisms to address questions comparable to those of the fish investigations.
