    Recently fished out from 600' below the surface of aa remote part of NW Russia, this guy has been documenting his more bizarre catches!

    This Russian Fisherman’s Deep-Sea Discoveries Are The Stuff Of Nightmares

    This article has the best photos so i linked it. Others will give you more of the story of you Google him.

    I've read that we've only been able to explore around 5% of what's in the ocean. Truly fascinating to wonder what else can be lurking in it's depths! :wideyed::jawdrop::nailbiting:

    Decided to copy and directly post them. He shares them via Instagram and twitter, so I'm sure he won't mind me reposting em here. Zoinks! There's a few more on his pages i has trouble saving >

    I kinda prefer the "send down a camera, take pictures, no useless killing" approach.

    You can actually see behavior rather than dead animals...

    I feel that for sure, though these are things accidentally brought up in their fishing net. I forget what the industry term is for unintentional catches.

    What gets me is that this guy is handling this sea cucumber with his bare hands.
    A lot of these deep sea things are poisonous.

    Yep, saw them. My son (major marine biology interest) identified most of them for me.
    In your order:
    Frilled shark
    Dunno
    Dunno
    Fangtooth
    Dunno
    Black Scabbardfish
    Probably a Sunfish
    Wasn't in the pics we saw, looks like a sea cucumber
    Monkfish
    Dunno
    Dunno

    Bycatch. One of the most destructive aspects of netting. If you are shrimping you must toss anything else back, even if it's eatible, and most likely already dead
