A Japanese research team, in cooperation with NHK, has succeeded in filming a fish swimming at a depth of 8,178 meters in the Pacific Ocean -- the deepest ever recorded.

Scientists believe the maximum depth a fish can survive is 8,200 meters. Beyond that, their cells are assumed to no longer function due to the water pressure.
