This is a place with different creatures and different rules. Here whales hunt with dolphins, fish congregate into boiling meatballs and sharks lurk in the shadows, just out of sight. Marine scientists such as Rochelle Constantine are beginning to understand the relationships and rules of the open sea, hopefully soon enough to save it.
