8,370 m (27,461 ft) — Cusk-eel (Abyssobrotula galatheae). The specimen was collected in the Puerto Rico Trench in 1970. The record depth is subject to debate since the fish may have been caught with a non-closing net. The cusk-eel may thus have been captured in the water column while the net was being lowered or raised.
