Video of the Oarfish, Regalecus glesne, on 5 August 15 2011

"On 15 August 2011, an ROV operated by Mako Technologies working for Hornbeck
Offshore Services was conducting seafloor and water column biotic surveys as
part of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill NRDA. The ROV was being recovered to the
vessel when a single R. glesne was observed at 1136 hours at a depth of 62 m. The
ROV manoeuvered towards the R. glesne where it maintained video observation of
the individual for c. 10min, while recording standard definition (SD), high definition
(HD: 1920 × 1080i) and digital still camera (12 MP) images. A pair of laser scalers
separated by 17 cm provided the capability to measure the individual."
