The lancetfish normally prowls the deep ocean, but one specimen unexpectedly washed ashore onto a beach in Nags Head, North Carolina on Monday.
That it appeared on shore at all is exceptional. The lancetfish is a deep-sea breed that rarely ever appears near beaches. Also, it is primarily only active at night, not during daylight when tourists are out and about.

It seems like we've been seeing lots of stories lately about rare, deep sea creatures coming into shallows, such as the multiple oarfish sightings. It's almost like something is driving them up from the bottom. Whatever the cause, it's neat to see some of these animals.

In related news, the ocean in some areas has become so acidic from pollution and runoff that shellfish and snail shells are dissolving:



Maybe it's a coincidence, maybe not. We have to also remember, after the Gulf spill we dumped a huge amount of Corexit into it, which could have spread by now. At any rate, it's looking like we truly ****ed ourselves.

ourselves? i certainly know I had no hand in none of those moronic decisions.

Yes, the notion of pollution and abuse of the ocean (BP oil spill/Corexit use and Fukushima radiation) seem to precede the apparent increase in news stories of late about abyssal creatures emerging from the depths.
I say "apparent" because it's entirely possible that a news cycle is just hinging on deep sea creatures wowing crowds on the beach, but statistically speaking there is no "increase" in their appearance.

At least they could identify the oar and lancetfish...
What the hell is that thing?

Looks like a grenadier to me. Apparently some species are edible and commercially fished in Europe. Bit weird to catch one off a pier, they tend to prefer deeper water, but nothing too interesting.

They're used to nice cool waters. They're finding less and less of that in those warming deep ocean waters so they are fleeing to the surface in search of cooler waters.

Wouldn't the water be colder as you went deeper and warmer at the surface?

That's why I said "in search of" cooler waters. They're environment is off so they're doing things they normally don't do.
