Marine species both bizarre and beautiful have frequently found their way into the nets of deep sea fishermen. Roman Fedortsov is one such person who works on a trawler operating from Murmansk in Northwest Russia, throughout his career as a fisherman he has photographed and recorded strange creatures of the deep caught in his nets.

10 Another deep-sea shark

This deep sea shark actually has glowing eyes. Deeps ea fish live in darkness and hence adapt and evolve their physiology accordingly. Many of such species are blind and survive on their heightened senses of pressure and smell. Some also have eyes that are a 100 times more sensitive than the human eye.

12 Marine spider

Among the strangest creatures of the deep, the marine arthropod is deep orange in color and some can also be very poisonous. As bizarre and ugly these fish maybe, they are the most mysterious but living links to an evolutionary past and hence should be preserved.
