More underwater oddities

In a follow-up to the Eltanin antenna affair, I’ll quote this from

“In the Arctic Ocean, 400 miles from the pole, Dr. Kenneth Hunkins dropped a camera through the ice to a depth of 7,000 feet and got photos of “chicken tracks”, 2 ? inches long, half an inch wide (N.Y. Times Feb. 24, 1958).

And in the Kermatek Trough, north of New Zealand, Nikita Zenkevitch got photos of “a big, unknown sea animal” at a depth of six miles. (Manchester Guardian, Mar. 19, 1958.)”

Now, what the heck is the Kermatek Trough? Does it even exist?
