See the World’s Weirdest Creatures Hauled From the Bottom of the Ocean

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.
