These fish are out of the deep sea, and into your nightmares, all thanks to the social media accounts of a Russian deep-sea fisherman. Roman Fedortsov is a fisherman based in Murmansk, Russia, who primarily seeks normal-looking fish like cod and haddock. But sometimes he catches non-target, rarely-seen species.
Currently, Fedortsov is in the Norwegian Sea, where he sets out deep-sea trawlers.
Sadly, the fish in the bycatch die an unfortunate death when brought up in the net. As deep-sea creatures, they are used to a high-pressure environment, and when brought to the surface too fast, their eyes sometimes pop out and their organs rupture.
