At least 12 species of crabs, prawns and lobsters collected from the deep seas in West Java are new to science. Another 40 are new records for Indonesia. Here are some of these strange and fascinating finds.

SINGAPORE: The expedition lasted two weeks. But it will take two years for the scientists to complete their studies of more than 12,000 specimens - some bizarre and new to science - hauled up from the bottom of the Sunda Strait and Indian Ocean.

These Indonesian waters off West Java had been largely unexplored by marine biologists until now. That changed in March, when a combined team from Singapore and Indonesia set out to sea.

“People have collected data off west of Sumatra, eastern parts of Indonesia and southeastern part of Java,” said Professor Peter Ng, head of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

“But for whatever reasons, the Sunda Strait in southwestern and southern Java were poorly collected. We had almost no information about the deep-sea animals living there.

So we thought, here’s a nice chance to fill the gap. We cannot conserve what we do not know.

Prof Ng, a well-known crab expert, led the 14-day South Java Deep Sea Biodiversity Expedition (SJADES 2018) with Professor Dwi Listyo Rahayu, a world authority on hermit crabs from the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI).

The research vessel with 31 scientists and support staff sailed from Jakarta towards Cilacap in southern Java and back, covering a total distance of 2,200km.

Can I get crabs from this bread?



You'll find that the only threads that get deleted are the ones that aren't even news stories and just fake links like "jimsucksdick.com."



>assumes most of the news on here isn't pure shit

At least this is an informative article.

>new to science

>12 species

>40 new records

Crustaceans rule!


Do you think crabs ever look at all the different looking people and say wow, that's a new species of human?



Lel. Must have missed that one. That wasn't what I was referring to, but you're right – that wouldn't be news now would it?

Anyone have the pic of a crab grabbing that guys dick? The SFW one preferably? unless you spoiler that shit



Fairly probable.



Shitskins with no respect for nature using the most invasive method to discover underwater fauna: trawling.

Geez. Tell the world about it. The japanese will hunt all these new tasty creatures to extinction now.

Idiot scientists.

Not sure even the Japs will eat crabs as small as some of these. Might as well be eating pubic lice.

I agree.

More meat on 'em when they're older.



I meant bigger.


I don't come to 8chan to read articles about fucking pubic lice.

Enquiring minds want to know.

I come for the propane articles, but I stay for the crabs.

They're just too tasty.

Welp, I was just down on the beach, got naked, I was minding my own business, when this crab walked up…

He was so cute!



Submersibles are extremely expensive and can't necessarily explore deep trench environments due to pressure.

Bumping le epic crab thread



>Panty crabs




Scientists complain about too much plastic and garbage on the bottom of the ocean, which they are trawling, leave plastic net on bottom of ocean, then complain about how too much plastic and garbage is left on the bottom of the ocean. Classic.

Welcome to current year.

Not saying you don't have a good reason to, Andy, but unironically why do you have such a hate-on for Jim?






Snicker snack!

Glad to see some 'real' news on the front page again.



>can't slide crab news

Not so much. Only propane news is more important here, and that would be subjective – like most news nowadays.

>Only propane news is more important

Street shitter news is also quite important
