Even More Interesting Deep Sea Fish (Tuesdays)

Hello fellow Marine Biologists! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some interesting deep sea fish. I hope you guys are ready for some truly unique creatures. Now, let’s get started!

  • Touchdown! Football fish (Himantolophus paucifilosus) (sci name from Claire Nouvan’s book The Deep) The Football fish is an incredibly interesting creature of the deep. It looks quite similar to Frankenstein’s monster due to the stitch-like dots that surround its body. (The Deep) The dots are actually sensory organs, and are used to detect the displacement of water.
