Looking like a creature from the Alien movies, this nightmarish "longhead dreamer" anglerfish (Chaenophryne longiceps) was until recently an alien species to Greenland waters
New Shark Swimming off Greenland
This Portuguese dogfish is one of four such specimens found off Greenland since 2007.
The Mediterranean grenadier, or rattail (pictured with a gape-mouthed expression) was first spotted around Greenland in 1998, the new report says. Most of the new-to-Greenland deepwater species reported in the survey, such as this grenadier, are of little commercial value.
But an already evident influx of shallow-living, relatively warm-water fish have boosted the fortunes of the local fishing industry, study leader Peter Møller said.
For Greenland, at least, ocean warming "isn't necessarily badthat's for sure," he said.
What is this, a Helen Thomas lookalike contest?
These are the “dork fish” that Bill Engval talks about in his comedy routine.
... just a beached whale.
You are BAD!!! Just like the real Uncle Miltie! ROTFL
My psychic abilities allowed me to accurately predict that “global warming” would be blamed, rather than acknowledging improvements in our research frequency and capabilities.
Maybe it would bite Sigorney Weaver’s liberal head off.
But the *important* question is: "How do they taste grilled, with a twist of lemon and some drawn butter?"
Sigorney Weavera - my daddy was a big shot President of NBC or some network when I was a little girl.
Yes! Break out the lemon and butter.
I said "meh". Neat sets, neat effects. Lousy plot. Typical liberal / conservative stereotypes for characters. There really weren't any original ideas in the whole movie - I found myself saying over and over: "Yep, I saw that when they did it in Aliens/Terminator/Matrix/whatever". I gave it a '5'. Not a complete waste of time, but not amazing, either.
I was glad that Mrs WBill borrowed the DVD from a friend, and I didn't pay $20 in the theater for us to see it on the first go-round.

I too saw it this weekend and was most impressed with the effects. Those were so very awesome.
Wouldn’t give 2 cents for the story tho. But visually it was a stunner....
Come on!! I am trying to eat lunch!!!
