During this Wednesday evening talk you will hear from Museums Victoria scientists who, in July this year, traveled on the CSIRO Marine National Facility Research Vessel, Investigator, to the Indian Ocean near Christmas Island. The purpose of this trip was to map the seafloor and sample marine life, including the unusual, beautiful, and ugly animals adapted to life in the dark, high-pressure ecosystem of the deep-sea.
