  • For the first time, cod and squid have been found deep in the water at the center of the ocean.
  • The research by Pauline Snoeijs Leijonmalm, a professor at Stockholm University, was part of the Mosaic expedition, an icebreaker that spent a year trapped in the Arctic’s ice.
  • The information gathered on possible fish stocks could be critical for deciding whether ecosystems there need protection from commercial fishing.
