This menagerie of deep-sea fish is a unique collection of mesopelagic and bathypelagic fish made possible by Oregon State Universities Icthylogical Collection. They represent life mostly spent in the dark, far from the suns rays. While they still interact with species that are dependent on the light, they live on a very different planet than the one we surface dwellers are accustomed to. Their ability to create light within their own bodies and live at un-imaginable depths (Some at over 7,500 feet down) is really AMAZING.
