    what kind of #fish?

    It is probably a #shrimp because it looks like it has an appendage sticking out the front. 136 m is pretty deep for a fish larva anyway

    It could be an #arrowworm and a shrimp. The imaging depth of field is 40 cm so 2 things can be overlayed in any image

    Hard to know for sure, but I always err on the side of caution when calling a fish because they are so rare

    haha true true, i saw the arrowworm first but defaulted to fish after the excitement of the find.. a lesson in crying-fish i guess ( :

    i think it is a #copepod now, they are fat sometimes.
