The scientists captured the footage (video below) and streamed it online in real time using a camera attached to a remote-operated deep sea vehicle, allowing them to roam further down into the waters than if they had sent divers.

“We're able to be in contact with up to 40 scientists a day,” said co-lead scientist Andrea Quattrini

They also have an internet chat room to discuss their observations with experts in marine geology, oceanography and taxonomy.
