Ocean life captured series stunning pictures

From TheDailyMail

Our oceans are thriving with a veritable cornucopia of life - much of which is rarely, if ever, seen.
It is believed that between 50 and 80 per cent of all life on earth is found hidden under the surface of these bodies of water.
Our oceans contain 99 per cent of the living space on the planet and less than 10 per cent of this vast expanse has been explored by humans.

'Into the Deep', presented by Steve Bloom Images, celebrates the startling variety of life found in the world's oceans and sheds some light on the weird and wonderful creatures who thrive in this mysterious abyss (see gallery).

Everything from the denizens of the deep who never see light of day, to the strange sealife that populates the wider ocean is seen in this serie of pictures.
The images start at the surface of the ocean and travel downwards - capturing what goes on beneath the waves and away from our view.
