A strange fish with glowing eyes caught off Nova Scotia.

HALIFAX — For a brief moment, Nova Scotia fisherman Scott Tanner thought he might have a case of cabin fever when he spotted a fish with glowing, green eyes in his trawler’s net.
The 23-year-old Lunenburg man was about a month into a 40-day commercial fishing trip for cod and redfish off Newfoundland and Labrador’s Grand Banks when the mysterious creature turned up, shocking even veteran fishermen on board.
“It stood out right away with the green eyes,” said Tanner, who snapped photos of the dead fish and posted them on Facebook. “Everybody was pretty amazed by it. The older guys, even, said they’d never seen one before.”
With its luminous peepers, long tail, sword-like nose and fins resembling wings, the fish netted last month has caught both the intrigue and disgust of the Internet.

Must be a deep down species, but not yet discovered till that trip.

The Chimera fishes are definitely deep dwellers, so those eye are hyper low light vision pieces. Hence the glow in day light, not unlike when you shine a flashlight into a cat's eyes
