The Pacific Ocean has a "desert" with the cleanest seawater in the world

Those who are tired of seeing how humanity pollutes the oceans should take a trip to the South Pacific Gyre for peace of mind. This space is 37 million square meters. km, in the middle of which is "point Nemo" - the oceanic pole of inaccessibility. It is here that spent satellites are dumped, partly because they are not afraid to harm anyone - this place is considered an uninhabited desert.

Powerful currents, which form a gyre, draw floating debris into it, which remains at the borders of the region. It is too far to any land, so there are neither people nor marine life, since there is no food for them. The high level of ultraviolet light literally burns out the water at the surface, so there is no plankton here either.

During the expedition of the German research vessel FS Sonne, which passed through the cycle from December 2015 to January 2016 from Chile to New Zealand, scientists found only 20 species of bacteria in the local water. They lowered the traps to depths from 20 to 5000 m and saw, in fact, emptiness everywhere. And so they came to the conclusion that these waters can be considered the cleanest in the world due to their extreme physical and chemical conditions.
