In the deepest parts of the sea there is essential no light - hence why we see so many bioluminescent animals. Deep see anglerfish were given this name because they use a small little light to lure in prey items - hence they are anglers. In some deep sea anglerfish - as encounters are rare between individuals it is unlikely that the male would ever meet another female - the males actually fuse and remain permanently attached to the female.
