The Rebikoff Foundation has captured amazing in-situ footage of this deep-sea Fanfin Anglerfish and her mate.

Science Magazine has published some of the most groundbreaking fish footage ever seen. It depicts a female deep-sea Fanfin Anglerfish (Caulophryne jordani) and her mate like never before. Researchers Kirsten and Joachim Jakobsen encountered the fish at 800 meters (2625 feet, or roughly a half-mile) depth while utilizing the Rebikoff Foundation‘s manned deep-sea submersible, LULA1000. The footage was captured at São Jorge Island in Portugal’s Azores archipeligo in 2016, and was only made public March 22nd, 2018.
