alfonsino fish

Figure 2. There are four alfonsino fish in this picture. The color red disappears quickly in the water column and so red-colored animals are virtually invisible in deep water. Members of this genus (Beryx) typically migrate from the seafloor into the water column to feed on mid-water animals. Image courtesy of Brooke et al, NOAA-OE, HBOI.
