About this book

Language: Japanese with scientific nomenclature

The world of the deep sea is one of darkness where the light of the sun does not reach. It is an unknown area with many mysteries still. But Numazu Deep Sea Aquarium in Japan allows you to have a glimpse at the deep sea. Numazu borders on some of the deepest seas of Japan, with depths of up to 2000 m and the aquarium faces Suruga Bay. Its focus is on deep sea creatures and the coelacanth, and it displays some 100 of the 3000 species of deep fishes living in the area. This book contains detailed habitat data of these species and records the struggles of aquarium keepers to raise and keep these fish through trial and error.
