The Barreleye Fish (Macropinna microstoma): The barreleye fish was first recorded in 1939, but its images were not widely known until 2004. They reside in the deep ocean and have a transparent head with a pair of tubular-shaped greenish-blue eyes positioned on the top of their head. The eyes are surrounded by a transparent shield-like structure filled with fluid. The green pigment in the eyes of the barreleye fish can filter light directly from the ocean surface, helping the fish to detect the bioluminescent glow of jellyfish or other organisms right above them.
