This video was taken by the ROV Tiburon at the Davidson Seamount, a huge underwater volcano, located just outside the boundary of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The scientists utilize the dexterity of the robotic arm on the ROV to capture an initially unidentified anglerfish. Placed into a sealed container for its journey to the surface, it arrives in the wet lab aboard the research vessel Western Flyer. The science team is then able to identify the specimen as a Deep Sea Toad (Chaunax Coloratus). Video courtesy of Davidson Seamount Exploration 2002, MBARI, NOAA/OER.
