The elusive Black Seadevil Anglerfish: Rare video footage by MBARI

Six hundred meters down in Monterey Submarine Canyon, off the coast of California, a ROV from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute captured this incredibly rare video footage of a 9 cm long, female Deep-Sea Anglerfish, specifically a Melanocetus or Black Seadevil. MBARI Senior Scientist Bruce Robison reports, “We believe that this is the first video footage ever made of this species alive and at depth.”

Slow-moving and tiny-eyed, this elusive fish is an ambush predator, using its bioluminescent lure to attract unsuspecting prey before inhaling them into its large, tooth-filled mouth.
