Sad Fish is Sad

Or rather, Blobfish is blob.
This deep sea fish is often found at extreme depths off of the coasts of Tasmania and Australia. For this reaseon the Blobfish is rarely seen by the human eye. The Blobfish has the ability to withstand the high pressure of these depths because its body is actually mostly a gelatinour mass that has a density just less than water. This gives the Blobfish the ability to actually float right above the bottom floor without using much energy.
