I would have thought available food sources will be a big factor of how large something can grow.  Deep sea is pitch black so food is far more difficult to come by.  Squids even come up from the depths to feed at night.

I would imagine most deep sea creatures are scavengers on what ever drops down from the top.  I wouldn't have thought that would be enough to sustain massive creatures.

Yes, those creatures all exist and there are most certainly large creatures in the ocean - but let's not blur the actual with discussions of things like Cthulhu, megaladon, etc.
can you imagine meeting one of those while you were out swimming, terrifying

I just watched that movie millenium bug and it had an interesting premise. Maby all these large sea creatures are down there but they are just hibernating or incubating untill the time is right.

I really like the idea of a gigantic seamonster like prehistoric animals or Cthulhu, but what's really there? I remember the bloop and it really sounds interesting, but I wonder if the ocean is big enough for really big fish to hide from mankind and if it's scientifically possible for larger than usual sea animals.
I love the idea of a massive sea-monster like Leviathan also, unless of course, I'm currently out in the ocean, then I hate it.

Makes me think about the monster movie Cloverfield, big gigantic alien like monster that's been sleeping deep at the bottom of the sea and was woken up by a satellite crashing down into the ocean.

Out in a few weeks here in Oz.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Well, I look at fish that we catch and they have 'bladders' that allow them with to go different depths without death or injury.  Maybe there are animals down there that have evolved to living down in the depths and can't come up without rupturing their 'bladders'.  Just an idea.

Interesting subject, no doubt. I've always wondered if the pressure difference might be the reason that scientists have such limited success with colossal squid living after being caught, or being bred in labs. Just like we can't survive down there, maybe they can't survive up here without the pressure ?

A little off-topic, I know. Just something I never think to ask about.

Can you imagine what a creatures skeletal structure would have to be made of to survive that pressure without being crushed? Or their skin... If there are creatures that can withstand those pressure levels, they would make for good body armor and products that would rarely need to be replaced unless they'd fall apart from the lack of pressure.
