In never before seen footage, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute scientists display a rare deep-sea anglerfish.

This video shows never-before seen footage of a deep-sea angler fish, Chaunacops coloratus. In it, a summary of recent work by scientists at Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, and Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is presented. The video seen here was recorded by MBARI's ROV Doc Ricketts at depths of 7,800 - 10,800 feet below the ocean's surface.
