Murmansk, Russia — There’s estimated to be about 20,000 species of fish and about 2 million species of animals and plants living in the world’s oceans. Most of those species are still unknown because they live in the deepest parts of the ocean that have yet to be explored. The thought of that alone makes things a little unsettling.
The vast uncertainty that exists makes it impossible to know what creatures may be lurking below the surface of those deep cold waters. But for Roman Fedortsov, it’s all in a day’s work because he makes his living catching those creatures. Each time he pulls up his net, he always finds something he hasn’t seen before.
