Deep Sea TV – reality TV from the bottom of the Sea!

The active deep blue Sea

WASHINGTON — Vicious fights! Stunning beauties! Surprises around every corner! Yes, it’s reality TV but with a lot more depth – as much as 10,000 feet. It’s live coverage of deep-sea exploration off Nantucket and tens of thousands of people are tuning in. They’re watching an eel suddenly attack a squid, oohing-and-aahing over hot pink starfish and listening as excited researchers discover a canyon so downright alien that sea life lives on methane escaping from the sea floor instead of sunlight.They’re watching science as it happens, however weird and wild.

“We’ve been calling it Deep Sea TV,” said National Marine Fisheries Services scientist Martha Nizinski, in a ship-to-shore interview. “It’s much better than any other reality show being broadcast.”

For years, the world of the deep sea floor has mostly been the province of scientists. A handful of researchers would huddle on a ship and watch the video from below, take notes, and two or three years later write a scientific paper. (Huffington Post Green)

As far as reality TV goes, its better to keep up with the ocean wellbeing than with the Kardashians.
