Monterey Scientists Capture the Creepy Deep Sea Anglerfish on Video

A team of scientists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have finally managed to capture the video of the deep-sea anglerfish. They also managed to gather the live specimen for research, and made use of the ROV Doc Ricketts, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute’s remotely-operated vehicle to view and capture the anglerfish. The device captured around half a dozen anglerfish in the video.

According to Dr. Bruce Robison of MBARI, this video contains the very first footage of a live anglerfish right in its deep-sea habitat, and is great considering the fact that this fish is one of the hardly seen fishes in the sea. The deep sea anglerfish is named so because of the way it feeds. It hangs the luminescent tip at the end of a ‘fishing pole’ which protrudes from its head and attracts the prey by making use of the ‘glowing lure’.

While the fish in the video may look scary, it’s just 3.5 inches long. It grabs its prey (which is usually a small fish or a squid) using its sharp teeth, and consumes it. Female anglerfish are known to be much bigger than males and for males, finding a partner is the main purpose in life.

“The footage was captured November 17 by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute’s ROVDoc Ricketts at a depth of 2,000 feet, and researchers were able to capture the fish for further study, though it is not expected to live”, reported Monterey County Weekly.

According to MBARI spokesperson Kim Fulton-Bennett, it’s hard to keep these species of anglerfish in confinement due to the fact that they live in sea, which is a very huge place. This fish is also called Black Seadevil and is found in the deep, dark waters of the Monterey Canyon.

Up until now, only three anglerfish have been observed by MBARI scientists and the footage is expected to provide more information about movements and habits of species.
