Last night's Blue Planet was filled with bizarre deep-sea creatures. But the strangest phenomenon of all was the underwater brine lake. Yes, that's a lake. At the bottom of the sea.

The brine is so much denser than the surrounding sea water that it sinks to the seabed, forming a lake. I had to feel sorry for the poor fish trying to swim across it and virtually bouncing off the surface.
