"Deepest fish ever recorded" filmed in the Mariana Trench

An international team aboard Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research vessel Falkor set a new record for the deepest fish ever recorded at 8143m in the Mariana Trench. The fish is a completely unknown variety of snailfish with a translucent body, broad wing-like fins and an eel-like tail. 
Additional details at the Washington Post.

  2. It's clearly showing off for the camera.
