A goosefish bites off more than he can chew...
In this DeepSee Submaribe video, a goosefish (Lophiodes caulinaris), attempts to eat an anthias fish whole. This is the first time we have seen something like this, and we are thrilled to be able to share the video footage from such an interesting event. At the end of the video, you can see that the anthias fish is able to escape, but attracts the attention of a curious conger eel.

DeepSee Synergy - Howard Hall Productions
In November 2011 Avi Klapfer of Undersea Group hosted a pre-production film crew from MacGillivray Freeman Films aboard the M/V Argo to promote the use of their DeepSee Submersible. This video was created to demonstrate the validity of supporting trimix rebreather divers with the submersible to explore the “Twilight Zone” below 250 feet. The dive site was a seamount near Cocos Island called Everest. During the expedition Greg MacGillivray captured preliminary sequences for his One World One Ocean IMAX project. At this time, no production plans have been set.
