Triple the Chaunacops Fun

Triple the Chaunacops Fun | Nautilus Live


Red (or should we say pink?) alert to Chaunacops fans! In this highlight video, we bring you not one, not two, but THREE Chaunacops spotted during our Ala ʻAumoana Kai Uli (NA154) expedition. Our Corps of Exploration spotted these sea toads while exploring Unnamed Seamount 12 in Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument- roughly 60 nautical miles northwest of Hōlanikū (Kure Atoll). These anglerfish belong to the family Chaunacidae. They are bottom-dwelling ambush predators best known for their bioluminescent lures.

E/V Nautilus is exploring unknown regions of the ocean seeking out new discoveries in biology, geology, and archaeology. Join us 24/7 for live video from the seafloor and to ask questions of our explorers currently aboard Nautilus: https://www.nautiluslive.org.
