Neocyttus helgae, False boarfish, swimming. Deep sea fish that lives between 900 and 1800 m deep close to seamounts. Were associated with basalt habitats featuring corals and as well as depressions in sheets of basalt. These features provided refuge from flow and predators as well as immediate access to zooplankton and pelagic prey delivered by rapid currents. Note territorial behaviour, such as raised dorsal spine and lateral display, occurred when submersible vehicles approached fish, suggesting that territorial defence is a common behavioural attribute.
