    I saw this this morning.
    He was doing some seriously deep diving to catch those specimens.
    Just a few weeks ago I saw his post on that expedition for those rare deep water angels somewhere off Hawai

    Besides the obvious, read the article;)

    Read a couple of articles and diving that those depths sounds scary.
    Here's another link to an article that I found interesting.Long read but worth the effort
