Scientists filmed rare transparent fish on video

The specialists managed to photograph an unusual and very rare fish – barley fish (Macropinna microstoma). Its distinctive feature is a transparent forehead through which huge green spherical eyes “look through”.

According to the scientists themselves, they had previously encountered it only 9 times.

Modern science has found that the habitat of barley stretches from the Bering Sea to Japan and Southern California. At the same time, the creature lives in the dark zones of the ocean – at a depth of 200 to 1000 m. There is no sunlight under this water column.
