The fish were recorded near the Eastern coast of Japan at the depth of 7,700 metres where pressure is astonishingly high.
British scientists have managed to record types of fish living in the deepest corners of oceans, Newscientist writes.
The fish were recorded near the Eastern coast of Japan at the depth of 7,700 metres, here experts of the Aberdeen University have set out with their colleagues from Tokyo.
The fish live in utter darkness where pressure as high as if 1,600 elephants were standing on a little Fiat 500 car. Cameras which can sustain such pressure were specifically made for this mission, each costing 100,000 pounds.
These fish feed on little shrimp-like animals and the water temperature at this depth is very low. Surprisingly, these are exceptionally active and “cute” tenants of the sea world, which cannot be surfaced up without special equipment.
