Yeah, the neat thing about these fish is that they have specially developed skeletal systems that can resist the tremendous pressure of the deep, deep sea. Many of them have adapted to living in the dark as well, as there is no light at that depth. Your chanes of catching some of the fish in these photos on a fishing trip are pretty much nil. Truly fascinating, and ancient, creatures. The fangtooth is my favorite of the bunch.

Just to supplement, a quick fact about the fangtooth (second picture from the top):

"This species occurs in bathypelagic and mesopelagic depths down to 4992m. It most common between 500m and 2000m, in temperate marine waters worldwide"

Bathypelagic and mesopelagic are Greek words that mean "deep sea" and "mid-sea" respectively.

This guy knows what he is talking about.


Whats fascinating is that like you said there is no light at depth. There skelton structure must be veryyyyy strong to habdle that type of pressure.

Yeah, depending on how quickly these fish were brought to surface, the sudden change in pressure was probably their biggest problem, followed by temperature shock. Sucks to be a fish :-(

^^^ Bummer. Well if it were true, some of them would have died this way before reaching the shore.

Fascinating creatures nonetheless.
