In remote lakes of Russia found a new species of fish

On our planet is quite a lot of places that had not gone before. There is a large probability that those parts of the Earth inhabited by living beings that still remain . Recently this assumption has been proved by Russian biologists who organized and conducted the expedition to the remotest lakes of Chukotka and the Kamchatka region. In these previously unexplored waters were discovered more than a dozen species of fish, which occurred about two hundred thousand years ago. To make this discovery, scientists had to overcome more than eight thousand kilometers, and because of the difficulty of the path half the way was done by helicopter.

About the opening of the Russian scientists told the news Agency . During the expedition, biologists have visited at least ten lakes that are located in remote areas of Chukotka and Northern Kamchatka Peninsula. They scattered across the territory with a total area of over 40 thousand square kilometers. To achieve the map points the scientists had to overcome about eight thousand kilometers. Much of the route, as mentioned above, was passed with the help of aircraft.

In Russia, found the new fish species

Scientists claim that reached the lakes they were able to open more than ten kinds of fish. However, at the moment they are told of only one new form. According to the participant of expedition of Grigory Markevich, first they discovered the fish were so called relic sigs. The existence of these fish of the salmon family known to scientists for a long time, but this particular species was entirely new to the scientific community.

This kind of fish lives mainly in the waters flowing into the Arctic. According to researchers, these creatures appeared in the lakes before the onset of the ice age. In particular, it is believed that they have adapted to life in lakes of approximately two hundred thousand years ago. Due to this discovery, scientists can understand the origins and other fish species.

About the other fish found scientists still didn't say anything. At the moment we know that they examine genetic samples of the species. The researchers hope that their findings will help them to understand the evolution of animals in Arctic conditions. Perhaps, in the world there are many unknown to science species of fish, but they are hidden in remote places of our planet. If scientists continue to conduct research known to science of fish could be increased.

There is a big probability that among yet undiscovered species there are varieties with amazing abilities. For example, there are at least 500 species of fish, the females of which can quickly turn into males. This happens when in the pack for whatever reason, killed the only male. Then one of the females to protect the rest of the pack within a few days completely changes your body and becomes male. More information can be found in our .
