Mods, sorry if this is in the wrong place or a duplicate. Saw this and had to share. Scientists have filmed a new species of fish in the Mariana Trench at a depth where we have never, ever seen any fish before. It's always so cool to see a new form of life and to make new discoveries. SCIENCE!!!

I don't lick (or, ah, click - Freudian finger slip?) random links. Any pics? Thanks for posting this, I love the deep sea lifeforms.

I wonder if it's edible?

Thanks, very nice looker. And if it's there, many others must be there too, so the depths which were thought to be empty of fish and other fellows must be teeming with life. Edible? Slayer, go vegan, you will not regret it (guaranteed).

Does it have eyes? What would they be of use in that dark depth?

Eyes are a good source of protein and liven up a stew or soup.

I don't get why we've only explored 5 percent of our waters while it's obviously full of wonder.
We're looking at the sky, trying to find aliens and all the while they're in our own backyard..

Can't wait for the day Google Oceans gets published, although I'm fine with animal planet for now, i could watch this stuff all day.. it's mesmerizing.

Handling the intense pressure of the deep sea is a challenge for most animals because it impedes muscles and nerves and bends proteins out of shape, disrupting the working of enzymes required for life." And indeed,the newly discovered fish is close to the limit at which fish can survive.


Is he sure about that? It seems like we keep finding fish and other living creatures at ever increasing depths.
forget about space, I think oceans are our final frontier, we seem to know very little about them and the creatures that live in them.

ETA: what`s that on the right side of the frame? it looks kind of like a diving helmet sitting on the sea floor. maybe it`s just a mars rock?

Spoken like a true human.


I will guess that if we can't eat it, something else surely can.

Peace

A little butter, garlic, salt and a hint of lemon?

Anything that had a parent is edible in my book, lol. One way or the other. ;-)

Seeing that it has no issues with going near the light shining on it and being down so far, I would venture to guess this might have no eyes. Or eyes that might not see it since light is not part of its natural habitat.

Just a guess.

Peace

Then it wouldn't see me and the frying pan coming at it...

Or it will see you, come at you at the speed of light, open and stretch its jaws to a slayer sized hole and...


Nothing left but a frying pan on the bottom of the ocean.

Definitely looks like it would be best cleaned, boiled with a little salt, and then drained and a little butter added. Maybe a little onions and potatoes to make it into a soup would be great.

Oh yeah, very good find OP. S&F. I go off into dreamland when I see things like this.

That's just the ever-present arrogance of science talking. The smart scientist should by now know to stop making statements about "where life can survive" in the interest of not looking like a fool when he's inevitably proven wrong by discoveries like this.

Very cool op. I just watched a movie that is very good about deep sea exploration. Here is a link to the preview. I highly recomend it.
It's by James Cameron and national geographic www.deepseachallenge.com...
Sorry but cut and paste should work.

They should name it something like a Casper fish...lol
Reminded me of a ghost the way it slowly swam by and then bumped into a rock.

Very cool!

I am in the "Can we eat it?" category.

I wonder what it eats way down there in the deep?

Anyways, s&f!

As far as eating these critters go, you could try catching them at these depths, but as soon as you brought them to the surface, they would disintegrate into goo. Everything down to the molecular and genetic level has adapted and evolved to survive at these depths.

Marine research laboratories have tried to take deep-depth critters like these to the surface, but they always died.
