Fact is, if you drop any kind of bio mass over the side of a vessel in deep water chances are something "very strange" will feast on its mortal remains.
I discovered this first hand in Honduras where titanic sized six gill sharks cruise up from deep water to join a small submarine at 2000'.
The sharks were a thrill but the forearm sized pink isopods that crawled all over the pigs heads we had dropped down ripping quarter sized chunks of flesh off them really surprised me (metal note: do not drown in any body of water).
This morning the BBC revealed more "critters from the deep" as cameras caught a unique species of fish feasting at 24,800 feet.
Fascinating reading and some great video too.
