Deepest Ever Fish Caught on Camera

Scientists have made a movie, a fish swimming at an exceptional depth in the ocean, made the deepest observation as that has never filmed.

A type of snailfish of the genus Pseudoliparis – was filmed swimming at 8,336m (27,349ft).
It was videoed by an autonomous “lander” dropped into the Izu-Ogasawara Trench, south of Japan.

Further the leading scientist shared his views that the snailfish could be at, or very close to, the maximum depth any fish can survive.

The last deepest fish observation was made at 8,178m, in the Pacific in the Mariana Trench. This filmed therefore break the depth record by 158m.

“If this record is broken, it would only be by minute increments, potentially by just a few meters,” Prof Alan Jamieso
