An underwater mountain with some of the richest diversity of marine life in the Caribbean has been found by a team made up of scientists from various institutions.

The find was made in the Saba Bank Atoll, a coral-crowned seamount, 250km south-east of Puerto Rico in the Netherlands Antilles.

The researchers found on average one species a day during their expedition.
