Deep inner space: a new species

Video of a newly discovered species is now the world’s deepest known fish recorded at 8,143 m depth. The fish has a novel body form that has not been seen before. It stunned scientists because in other trenches, there is only one fish species at this depth–a snailfish; this fish is really different from any other deep-sea fish that scientists have ever seen.

  • I wonder what affect there is on the fish having been invaded by light. Maybe at that depth it doesn’t have eyes.
