New Fish Species Discovered

Near Antarctica in the freezing deep sea water, a new fish species was discovered. The hopbeard plunderfish, also known as Pogonophryne neyelovi, can live up to a mile under Antarctica's Ross Sea. A group of Ukranians tried to catch an Antarctic toothfish by baiting it with Peruvian squid. They flung it out into the sea and accidentaly caught the hopbeard plunderfish. It is a very unique fish qith barbs on the chin, and spiny fins.
