A previously undiscovered octopus nursery has been found by marine scientists almost two miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Costa Rica. This remarkable discovery has the potential to contribute to enhanced protection measures for the surrounding area, said researchers. The brooding site was found during a three-week expedition by a team of 20 scientists earlier this month. However, at the time, it was unclear whether the nursery was viable.
