Rare fish in the Bathygadid family. The fisheries biologists on board the KOK are not sure what species it is, but they think it may be in the Gadomus genus. Supposedly, there are only two genus of this family in Hawaii and only one Gadomus species (G. melanopterus) has been seen in Hawai'i. This will be a new record for the HURL group.
