Even now, during the past ten years of the 21st century, there have only been six countries with vessels capable of deep-sea exploration. The opportunity of observing creatures that live in the deep sea by means of photography and video is small, and research has not yet sufficiently advanced. Nevertheless, gradually observations are being made. Based on the research results of scientists around the world, the illustrations in this book reproduce the amazing deep-sea fish observed by the author, and introduces their mysterious ecology.
Summary in Japanese:
21世紀を十数年過ぎたいまでも、深海探査艇をもつ国はわずか6カ国。ゆえに深海で生きる生物たちの姿が写真や映像で撮られる機会は少なく、研究も十分に 進んでいないのが実情だ。しかしそれでも、少しずつだがわかってきたこともある。本書では世界各国の科学者の研究成果をもとに、驚くべき深海魚の姿形を著 者自身のイラストで再現しつつ、その不可思議な生態を紹介していく。
