Chromis abyssus (Deep Blue Chromis) - New Discoveries

Last updated about 7 years ago

This species was first observed in 1997 by Richard Pyle during a dive to 120 meters (400 feet) in Palau. It managed to ellude capture for a full decade, until nine specimens were finally captured in April 2007 at a depths of 107-116 meters (350-380 feet). This collection includes amazing deep sea videos and the description of this elusive fish.
