Ocean conservation group Oceana
announces their online contest for the Freakiest Fish of 2008. All the nominees are for the most part deep sea but not all are fish. Not only did the pram bug make the list but so did several cephalopods. You vote and the winner is announced on Halloween.
Kevin and I strongly urge you to vote for an invertebrate. If an organism with notochord and pharyngeal slits wins, we might just hold this blog and a few others hostage. If the one you pick wins, you are entered in drawing for a pair of tickets to the IMAX "Deep Sea 3D" and one voter will win a copy of "The Deep".
