Looking like a creature from the Alien movies, this nightmarish "long. dreamer" anglerfish (Chaenophryne longiceps) was until recently an alien species to Greenland waters

New Shark Swimming off Greenland

This Portuguese dogfish is one of four such specimens found off Greenland since 2007.

The Mediterranean grenadier, or rattail (pictured with a gape-mouthed expression) was first spotted around Greenland in 1998, the new report says. Most of the new-to-Greenland deepwater species reported in the survey, such as this grenadier, are of little commercial value.

But an already evident influx of shallow-living, relatively warm-water fish have boosted the fortunes of the local fishing industry, study leader Peter Møller said.

For Greenland, at least, ocean warming "isn't necessarily bad—that's for sure," he said.

What a ugly little guy. Looks like some kind of alien if you ask me.


According to,

National Geographic, the dreamer, which grows to a not-so-monstrous 6.7 inches (17 centimeters) in length, is 1 of 38 fish species found around the Arctic island for the first time, according to a recent study led by biologist Peter Møller of the Natural History Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen.

Ten of the species new to Greenland are new to science too. All 38 were discovered since the last such survey in 1992.


EDIT: SOO MANY ISSUESSS.... lol

Notice how these are all species normally found at lower latitudes. Yet more evidence, along with the uphill advance of mountain-dwelling species and ever-earlier spring flowerings, that Earth is getting warmer.

adding these to my growing list of reasons to never, EVER, go into the ocean.
