The 2013 Northeast U.S. Canyons Expedition, which is exploring deep-sea life off the New England coast, has uncovered a vast and diverse ecosystem. The 36-day expedition is gathering information about 11 canyons and one seamount at depths ranging from 1,600 to 7,000 feet before potentially opening up the area to fishing, says Tim Shank of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts.
