Many unknown deep-sea species are waiting to be discovered. During the Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life CeDAMar, the abyssal plains of many regions of the World Ocean were sampled. Follow us on our long journey from sampling the seabed and working in the lab to describing a new species.
On our deep-sea expeditions we collect meiofauna, one-millimeter-size animals that live in the sediments of the sea. The geographic distributions of many already described deep-sea species, especially those of meiofauna size, are unknown. Only when we can recognize individuals from distant locations as belonging to the same species, can we determine the large-scale biogeography of benthic copepods. New records of species of the benthic copepod family Paramesochridae support the cosmopolitanism of sediment-dwelling, abyssal copepods.
