“On the video camera we saw a kind of chimaera that whizzed by - that's very, very rare in Australian waters. We've seen a fish with photosensitive plates that sit on the top of its head, tripod fish that sit up on their fins and face into the current,” one of the scientists, called Di Bray from Museums Victoria, said.

The faceless fish does have nostrils and a mouth. The crew commented they are collecting many specimens which have been unknown to Australian waters until now. “We're not even scratching the surface of what we know about our abyssal plain fishes,” Bray said.
