Ratfish Richard Salas If you're confused whether the ratfish looks more like a fish or a shark (yes, sharks are a group of fish), fear not! They are chimeras, which means they have characteristics similar to the cartilaginous shark, and the bony fish. Photograph was taken in Browning Wall, British Columbia, Canada.
"Our World Underwater 2013," an international underwater photo contest known in some parts as the Super Bowl of underwater imaging events, produced thousands of images representing photographers from 15 countries. The entries didn't disappoint, as you will see. DivePhotoGuide and WetPixel, which put on the contest that donated a portion of the proceeds to marine conservation, gave us permission to publish some of the winning photos.
