      Bizarre Ocean Creatures: The Hatchetfish

    • Jill Craner James

      The Deep Sea Hatchetfish — Named for their shape, these little beauties range from 1-6 inches, are very thin, and have large upward facing eyes that are thought to be used to locate prey above them. They are vertical migrators, meaning that they swim from the depths to upper waters to hunt. Hatchetfishes are one of the many deep sea creatures that have the ability to create their own light through a process known as bioluminescence via special light-producing organs known as photophophores.

    The giant isopod, known scientifically as Bathynomus giganteus, is the largest known member of the isopod family. It is very closely related to the small pillbugs that you can find in the garden. It is a carnivorous crustacean that spends its time scavenging the deep ocean floor. Food is extremely scarce at these great depths, so the isopod has adapted to eat what ever happens to fall to the ocean floor from above. It will also feed on some of the small invertebrates that live at these depths.
