Our Amazing Ocean!
There are over 30,000 species of fish in the ocean!
The largest fish in the world is the Whale Shark. It can grow up to 40ft long and lives in deep water, mainly in subtropical oceans. They can eat in excess of 40 pounds of food a day.
The world’s smallest fish is the Paedocypris Progenetica. It can be found found living in the waters of the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
A fully grown female is just over 1/4-inch in length. The Paedocypris Progenetica is so small you can actually see through parts of its body!
The Mariana Trench is the deepest area of the world’s oceans. At 7 miles deep, it’s deeper than the tallest mountain’s height (Mt. Everest).
The trench is so deep that no light can reach its very bottom. Most of what we know about what’s down there is through remotely operated vehicles.
Although a few attempts have been made to dive down to its bottom. The first person to dive the Mariana Trench was Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh in 1960.
