On November 17, 2014, researchers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) used a used a remotely operated vehicle, a kind of undersea robot, to videotape this rare deep-sea anglerfish in Monterey Canyon, about 580 meters (1,900 feet) below the ocean surface. Anglerfish, like this Melanocetus, are among the most rarely seen of all deep-sea fishes. The shining spot at the tip of the "fishing pole" projecting from the fish's head is a glowing lure. The anglerfish uses its light to attract prey in its deep, dark habitat. This picture marks the first time this fish was captured on camera in its natural habitat.
