Abstract : Deep-Sea Anglers are members of a group of fish that lives in the regions of the sea where light does not penetrate, where the temperature is low and constant and the pressure is high. Because of the difficult conditions of life in which the fish live they are modified and adapted in many ways. As a result they may appear very different from the more familiar, commercially-caught fish.
