Polish-Ukrainian team in Antarctica.  Scientists have done this for the first time

Scientists from the crew of the research vessel “Noosphere” conducted a fascinating study in the Penola Strait, Off the Argentine islands, using a specialized tool known as bottom trawl. The “experiment” was conducted at three different depths and made extraordinary discoveries about the inhabitants of the deep sea.

At a depth of 250 metres, the dominant species were sponges, large starfish and sea cucumbers, also known as sea cucumbers. At a depth of 200 metres, researchers encountered medium-sized starfish, snails, and large echinoderms, also known as marine fragilis. The latest sample, taken from a depth of 120 metres, revealed a wealth of different species of tubeworms and resident bryozoan colonies.

The main goal of this research was to determine the mineral content in the mineral structures of these marine organisms. As scientists explain, this is key to understanding how the physiology of marine organisms adapts to changing climatic conditions – including increased seawater temperature and decreased oxidation levels.

It should be noted that the research is of great importance not only for marine and ocean science, but also for understanding the impact of climate change on marine life. Understanding these organisms' adaptation mechanisms to challenging environmental conditions can provide valuable clues about the future of our planet and the impact of human activity on marine ecosystems.
