Fish on Jupiter’s moon?

According to new research, Europa, which apparently serves as a home to a massive ocean just under its icy shell, may also be the home planet to a possible three million tons of fishlike creatures.  This research suggests that the oceans are actually being pumped full of oxygen at levels that are over a hundred times greater than previously believed.  Scientist Richard Greenberg of the University of Arizona in Tucson reminds of the importance that there still is no proof of these alien fishies, but as deep-sea molecular ecologist Timothy Shank puts it, “I’d be shocked if no life existed on Europa.”
