IceCube's discovery of an extragalactic neutrino flux has marked the beginning of a new era for neutrino astronomy, prompting the development of more sensitive next-gen neutrino telescopes to uncover the source of cosmic rays and explore physics beyond the Standard Model on cosmic scales. Amid global efforts to build advanced observatories, a telescope near Earth's equator provides unique coverage to the entire neutrino sky. This talk discusses a successful pathfinder experiment identifying a promising site in the Western Pacific Ocean (northern South China Sea) and outlines the TRIDENT neutrino telescope's conceptual design, performance, and timelines.
