"Alien" caught in the Norwegian Sea

The amphipod Phronima sedentaria, which is commonly found in southern waters such as the Mediterranian, was - surprisingly - caught by IMR in the Norwegian Sea last winter. Frightening as it may look, the little fellow is only 30 mm long and thus far less intimidating than its science fiction double!
