The deepest living fish ever spotted in the southern hemisphere have been caught on camera.

The bizarre-looking pink creatures were photographed at a depth of 7,560m (24,800ft), swimming in the Kermadec Trench off the coast of New Zealand.

I hope those of you who find this interesting enjoy it.

Thanks for posting this.

I followed the link and watched the video. I noticed that there was also a smaller fish that didn't seem like it was the same species. Side note they reminded me of large guppies.

Fanatstic stuff!!!

It really does make you wonder about all the different types of fish we dont know about down there

By the way, I think this should be in fragile earth rather than cryptozoology...they are after all confirmed to be real

Very cool.

Reminds me of polliwogs with fins.

They have eyes. Very interesting.

We know more from the surface of Mars than the deep seas of our planet.

Or something like that, I don't remember well.

This is so exciting!

It's in the Liparidae, or snailfish, family. Check it out:

These guys are awesome.

They are probably vestigial and more like eyespots than eyes. I bet they are used for light sensing of bioluminescence in their prey (some copepods and stuff who eat bioluminescent bacteria). I am positive that they are not complex eyes. They wouldn't be necessary.
