The greatest migration of any animals on our planet happens every night in the form of Zooplankton rising from the depths towards the surface, where divers can meet and enjoy the weird, exotic, and wonderful creatures that appear.  The World of Blackwater is an e-Book that is the first of its kind. In it, we show a unique hidden world on our planet and learn about exotic creatures and contemplate what it must be like to drift with them in the open ocean at night. It also includes introduction to blackwater, diet migration, different species cephalopods, crustaceans, larval fish and a lot more.
