This is a great piece from the NY Times of a study off the coast of California about the eating habits in the deep sea:
“You’ll never go to dinner in the deep sea. It’s dark, vast and weird down there. If the pressure alone didn’t destroy your land-bound body, some hungry sea creature would probably try to eat you.
Fortunately for you, something else has spent a lot of time down there, helping to prepare this guide to deep sea dining.”
One quick question- if the pressure is so great it can destroy metal objects how do boneless fishes survive and thrive in those pressures?
It’s all about the air. Deep sea fishes don’t have any air spaces in their bodies. Here’s a pretty interesting explanation.
