If Tim Burton ever told a fish story, it’d have to feature some of these monsters.
Roman Fedortsov is a deep-sea fisherman living in Murmansk, a village in Russia near Finland and the Barents Sea. Species that inhabit the depths of the North Atlantic adapt to frigid, dark conditions that are unlike anywhere else on Earth.
He’s been posting photos of the fish he’s been catching lately, and, well, you can see for yourself: these are no regular bass, snapper or trout.
Notice that he’s holding most of these with his bare hands. Not for us, thanks.
All photos from Fedortsov’s Twitter page (and there are plenty more).
