Interest of the senior author in deep sea photography stems from a desire to obtain photographs of deep sea luminous fish-not by their own light, but in their natural environment, using artificial illumination. The abundance of deep sea forms observed by Beebe (1934) from his bathysphere suggests that success might be achieved, especiaJly if a lure could be found that would attract deep sea fish to the front of the camera.
