Red Fish, Blue Fish Captured on Camera

113 years. That's how long it has been since someone has recorded about the rare Chaunacaops coloratus Anglerfish. But, this is the first time it has ever been recorded on video. Instead of swimming, this fish walks on the sea floor. Size ranges from 3-8 inches, and scientists believed that the color of the fish was red, but it actually is blue when it is young. The video of the fish was done by Monterey Bay Aquarium and was captured by a remote operated vehicle. They recorded it off the coast of northern California and 11,000 feet below the surface.
