A Shaefer's anglerfish (Sladenia shaefersi) that was later brought up by the Johnson-Sea-Link II submersible. This is the third specimen of this species that has ever been seen. The first was off the coast of Columbia in 1976, and the other one was a few years later near Aruba. Video courtesy of Estuary to the Abyss 2004 Exploration, George Sedberry, NOAA-OE.
