A deep sea amoeba

Acantharians are one of the four types of large amoebae that occur in marine open waters. Their fragile skeletons are made of a single crystal of strontium sulfate that quickly dissolves in the ocean water after the cell dies

The bioluminescent, Pyrocystis lunula is a crescent or half-moon shaped dinoflagellate species that belongs to the oceanic plankton of tropical and subtropical seas. It is a single-celled alga (round nucleus) and reproduces asexually.

Skeletonema is a single-cell organism belonging to the group of algae called diatoms. Diatoms are unique among the phytoplankton in having a glasslike exterior made of silica. Skeletonema is a chain-forming alga and one of the most commonplace diatoms in the marine coastal environment. Blooms, which often occur in winter and spring, can discolor the water yellow to brown. This diatom is not toxic, but Skeletonema blooms can mechanically damage the gills of fish by clogging them, and killing…

The Oarfish can grow as long as 56 feet.

More Pics of the Amazing Oarfish.

The Oarfish is a rare, solitary, and giant denizen of the ocean depths (arguably larger than a Whale Shark. (The as opposed to the Whale Shark, in the Guinness Book of World Records.)) and is a filter feeder, comfortable cruising at depths of 200 m.

Diatoms have cell walls called frustules that contain opaline silica and fine pores. The tiny pores in the frustules make them a useful filtering material for a wide range of industrial products, including beer and jet fuel.
