Being a mermaid lover and having love for the ocean I have been curious to know how deep our oceans really are. As mermaids like to stay hidden and there is much water that has yet to be examined so who knows what is out there. As I did a little research I have found that the deepest part of the ocean is According to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmosheric Administration) The ocean is about 2.65 miles in depth. The average depth of the ocean is about 14,000 feet. The deepest part of the ocean is called the Challenger Deep and is located beneath the western Pacific Ocean in the southern end of the Mariana Trench, which runs several hundred kilometers southwest of the U.S. territorial island of Guam. Challenger Deep is approximately 36,200 feet deep. It is named after the HMS Challenger, whose crew first sounded the depths of the trench in 1875 (How Deep is the Ocean?, 2014). With there being so much depth and so much ocean that is why I believe mermaids exist if they wanted to be found they would have shown themselves to us by now they will forever hide.
