Scientists from the Pierre and Marie Curie University, from the CNRS and from the IFREMER gathered with the Océanopolis Park, located in Brest (France), to present a new permanent and exclusive exhibition: Abyssbox.
Thanks to an experimental box, conceived by a CNRS researcher, the extreme living conditions of the depths have been reconstituted. This underwater faun (at the moment shrimps and crabs) is maintained in life and observed in a pressurized aquarium which reproduce the depths pressure. For the first time in the world, a small porthole allows the public and the scientists to gaze at these animals that usually cannot be observed out of their environment.
