Here are some beautiful and amazing pictures of fish discovered under the Great Barrier Reef:

Experts from the University of Queensland's brain institute in Australia used high-tech cameras to glimpse at life almost 1,500 metres under the sea.
Marine biologist Justin Marshall, who led the team, said prehistoric six-gilled sharks, giant oil fish and swarms of crustaceans were among the species captured on camera.

Few pictures from the article:

I think this one looks like a little alien in his spaceship (really he's a deep sea amphipod Phronima:

Deep sea jellyfish Atolla:

I am from QLD and I woke to these images this morning! Awesome! Thanks for the smh link, they usually have good image galleries for this sort of thing. I especially like the last pic in your post of the deep sea jellyfish peraphilla.

Sorry - once again I've failed to find a previous thread, even after doing a search with what I thought were the relevant words: Deep sea fish. Great Barrier Reef.

nonelikeithot - I'll take this opportunity to welcome you to ATS so this thread isn't a complete waste of time
I hope you enjoy yourself here.

Thanks Berenike - The post put up earlier was done at about 1am QLD time, so yeah, I was in bed at that time and therefore never saw that thread. Saw it on first, then headed here thinking someone would have posted more pics found some and thought I'd do my first 'flag'. Shame on me for flagging without checking

No stress
I just happened to have the page still loaded in a firefox tab so that's how I knew about it
I've done it many times, especially when different sources use different headings.
