I am guessing most of you have allready read about the barreleye fish but those who haven't can read an article here.

Truth is stranger than fiction especially in the deep

When I first saw a pic of this fish I honestly thought it was fake or something. Not until I saw a video of it did I actually believe it. Really weird indeed.

Yeah that is weird when you see something leading out of the container ahead of the fish. Not sure if it was a line or something else that wanted to escape the container.

I would have been sceptical as well if it wasn't from MBARI

I'm not sure it was a line. I'd like to think it wasn't. Hopelfully the scientists mentioned have better ways of catching fish! The narrator made it sound like he was escaping a trap so I though the flash may have been prey or something of the sort.

Wow, thanks for sharing! I think it is truly amazing how the animals of the deep ocean are, completely different than the animals that we are used to in the shallower waters. Like something out of Sci. Fi.
