Blobfish have no skeletons



The blobfish hovers above the seabed, meaning they live in some of the deepest parts of the ocean. Due to the pressure down there, the gelatinous body mass of the fish is given structure. The high pressure at such depths allows them to look like regular fish.

However, when they are brought to the surface, and the pressure drops, they appear droopy. Their body mass isn’t supported, and they appear like a blob. This is because they have no skeleton and very little muscle. The pressure at the seabed is around 120 times higher than on land, meaning they are held into shape.
