Anybody home? Little response in Pacific gyre

Image
The South Pacific Gyre has some of the conditions to support life yet remains a veritable desert on the ocean floor. Scientists are studying this, for some reason. I understand the interconnectedness of life and such, but do you think this is worthy of scientific research?

  1. I am sure there is some sort of microbial life down there although the article doesn't say. I'd say it's worthy of research, mainly to find out why life is so limited in a gyre and what, if any, sort of life it does support.
