#24 – Giant isopod
The giant isopod actually refers to any 1 of the 20 main types of isopods. The one we refer to lies within genus called Bathynomus. Like a cockroach of the sea (however not identified with cockroaches), the giant isopod can grow up to 16 inches long in profound waters because of a marvel known as deep sea gigantism. They’re not attractive for fishing because when they get trapped, they’ll usually get scavenged by other creatures before the get recovered. You may be able to see some of these in the Americas or Japan in aquariums.
