What fascinating animals. There's so little we know about deep sea creatures. There must be a massive amount of species that we don't know about.

I used to do a lot of sailing, from 1973 util 2006 and for a time after retiring from a full-time job, I was a journalist for Sailing Today magazine. During those years I experienced some great moments and close encounters with fish and sea-mammals.
Two points I always adhered to:
1. I never fished while at sea, on the grounds that if I don't eat them, then they won't eat me if I fell overboard.
2. I never learned to swim until I had given up sailing. If I fell overboard , then I wanted to go quickly!
