Scientists in Antarctica have a surprising and discovery - the world's largest breeding ground for fish. Researchers from Germany's Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research across the fish while the seabed of the Antarctic Weddell Sea. They schools of around 60 million icefish breeding in an area roughly 240 square kilometers in size. The research team had been a number of cameras to a depth of 530 metres under the Weddell Sea for months. Deep-sea biologist Autun Purser on the find. He : "The idea that such a huge breeding area of icefish in the Weddell Sea previously is totally fascinating."

The researchers have been the region hoping to it as an official Marine Protected Area. They say the seas a unique habitat that must preserved. They want to fishing and invasive research to the waters as pristine as possible. A recent University of Cambridge study that fishing trawlers in Antarctica are bringing millions of "hitch-hiking" species from 1,500 ports around the globe. These are the area's fragile eco-systems. A researcher said: "So far, the remoteness and difficult sea-ice conditions of this southernmost area...have it, but...we should much more ambitious with marine conservation."
