Results of a new survey in the Antarctic seas have just been released, showing that more than any other region in the world, the Antarctic contains the most amount of species and overal biodiversity on the planet.

The survey recorded 1,224 species in 50 different biological classes. The team discovered five new species and one genus – the biological category that is higher than species – that was new to science.
