Abstract

Deep sea represents extreme environment due to high pressure and lack of sun light. No matter to those conditions, which are extreme for humans, some fish were able to adjust their living in deep sea environment and it became normal way of life for them. Deep sea zone shows poor biomass regarding the species diversity, but looking through biological performances it has very interesting fauna. Thousands of meters below the surface, the pressure is one hundred times higher than on the surface. Most featured characteristics of deep sea fishes are capability of bioluminescence, big or stunted eyes, slow metabolism and big jaws.
