A fisherman from Murmansk, Russia, shares the snapshots of his grotesque and fascinating fish-like finds online, much to the horror of the internet.
Roman Fedortsov, 39, spends a lot of time fishing for trawlers, coming into contact with a wide range of marine life.
The trawlers he is working on are responsible for catching commercial fish such as cod, haddock and mackerel, but the bizarre critters shown below also appear.
This pale toad fish, a foot long (30 cm) fish that lives on the continental shelf around News Zealand between 140 and 550 fathoms (250m-1,000m) depth, is one of the bizarre catches put online by the Russian fisherman Roman Fedortsov
This strange, unidentified fish bears a disturbing resemblance to the monster from the 1979 sci-fi Alien movie
Bright orange blobs, snail-like lumps, fish with teeth and bulging eyes; His discoveries may look more like aliens than fish for the untrained eye, but Roman is apparently interested and impressed by what he encounters.
These oddities in the water were mainly found in the Norwegian and Barents Sea, while some of them came ashore from the Atlantic Ocean.
Roman went to Marine University in Murmansk and is an expert in processing and preparing fish.
He has set up his social media accounts to share these photos with people who might otherwise not see them.
