Here is a deep sea fish we didn’t have the room to bring home from a trip a couple of years back.

It had a fishing line in its mouth and was worn out, we took it out and it swam off,not a happy fishy,lol.

I think it was sick enough to have died later on,who knows.

I wonder how the internal systems and body works of the various species down there to withstand such high pressures

If you were curious about this

I would suggest reading up on the Baikal oil fish.

Yes its freshwater, but its one tough sob

Few months old but

Ecologists capture first deep-sea fish noises

University of Massachusetts Amherst fish biologists have published one of the first studies of deep-sea fish sounds in more than 50 years, collected from the sea floor about 2,237 feet (682 meters) below the North Atlantic. With recording technology now more affordable, Rodney Rountree, Francis Juanes and colleagues are exploring the idea that many fish make sounds to communicate with each other, especially those that live in the perpetual dark of the deep ocean.
