Not one, not two, five thousand together. Anyone can be shocked at first hearing the number. But it is shockingly true. Scientists have recently discovered 5,000 new species of animals in the Pacific Ocean. Experts claim that 88 to 92 percent of this huge number of species have never been found on earth before. A large number of colonies of this new species were found in the Clarion Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean. This Clarion Clipperton zone is famous for another reason. A large amount of minerals are found in this region as a battery material. Usually those minerals are extracted from here. But at the same time, a large number of marine animals also live here. A large number of them were found to exist this time.

According to experts, this huge area covers an area of 5000 km right in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. This special zone has gone down to a depth of 4000 to 5000 meters under water. 5,000 new species of animals have been found in this area of the Central Pacific Ocean. According to experts, the surface beneath the sea in this region is called the Abyssal Seafloor. It is made with a special type of mud step. It contains some metallic objects of the size of small pebbles. Among which a large amount of copper, nickel, iron, manganese and several rare elemental compounds.
Mariel Rabon, the lead author of the study, said, “As a researcher, this large number of animal data has been presented to people. It is the responsibility of humans to protect their biodiversity. This research paper was published in the famous scientific journal Current Biology on May 25. The paper identifies that area of the central Pacific Ocean as a future hotspot. The area has been specifically identified for deep sea drilling. At the same time, it is also said that this is the first time that the information of the species of that region has been specifically documented.
