"New species found in Bohol deep"

Category : research

"New species found in Bohol deep." By Charles E. Buban. Inquirer News Service, 07 Oct 2005. [pdf] Editor's Note: Published on page A1 of the Oct. 7, 2005 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

"An International research expedition has found species of mollusks, crustaceans, echinoderms (star fish, sea urchins and sea cucumbers) and fish that may be new to science in the deep waters off Bohol province.

The research was part of the Panglao Marine Biodiversity Project 2005: Survey of the Deep-water Benthic Fauna of Bohol Sea and Adjacent Waters, or the Panglao 2005 expedition.

A team of 30 marine scientists, technicians and fishing masters from France, Singapore, Taiwan, Russia and the Philippines went on a two-week expedition in May using unsophisticated methods like trawling, dredging and trapping.

The research team said it also gathered specimens previously regarded as rare to very rare, including those previously thought to be not found in the Philippines or even in the Southeast Asian biogeographic zone."
