    I didn't realize there were so may species that we eat that lived in such deep waters.

    Lots of inaccuracies. It shows pacific cod at 843 meters. They’re usually more like 60. Lots of others look fishy, too.

    Cool! It looks like it’s “how deep they go” rather than “where they live,” but still very cool.

    Yeah you might not want to do research for your PhD on that site, but it is more of a fun way to discover funny named fish.

    Yep, it’s definitely how deep they go, at least for the first couple of thousand meters.

    IMO that’s a great link for kids or general population that doesn’t know anything about the sea.

    Lotsa band name possibilities!

    I like the "faceless fish". I guess, if you're 6,000+ meters below, what's the use of having a face? You're flying by instruments. You see nothing, and nothing sees you. Weird.

    Whether scientifically accurate or not, I much enjoyed scrolling through that. Thanks for sharing!

    I really didn’t want to poop in your Cheerios. It’s a very cool looking page. I let a couple slide but then the cod put me over the edge:confused:.

    It is a cool site. Thanks
    I’ve been just over 150’. It is a strange world at that depth. I know some technical divers that have gone quite a bit deeper in the 250’-260’ range.

    The Puerto Rican Trench is about 100 or so miles NNW from here. Between STX and STT the bottom is around 13,500’ deep

    This is a great way to introduce someone to the Undersea World and maybe spark a few marine biologists.
