If you're worried about fishing the seas dry, there may be good news. The so-called "twilight zone", a region between 200-1000m below the surface, is essentially a larder brimming with undiscovered species. So plentiful are the fish that World War Two-era oceanographers thought their sonar had detected the ocean bottom at 200m, while all they detected was scores of fish reflecting the sonar signal. This riveting BBC article delves into the hows and whys of deepsea fishing. #deepsea #fishing #industry #twilight #lardercommon.seeMore
