deep sea life

I'm a reporter for the science radio show Earth & Sky. We answer
listener's questions on air, and we like to get information from people
actually working in the field. I am researching one such question: "What
lives at the deepest part of the Ocean." I know that the Marianas Trench
is the deepest part of the Ocean and that the Trieste visited depths
approaching this in 1960. I have heard it said, but cannot confirm, that
the Trieste photographed life at that depth. 

Can anyone tell me, in addition to bacterial life, what, if anything,
lives at the bottom of the Marianas Trench.

Thank you.
