A specimen of Aaptos kanuux (upper left center), which was named after the Aleut word for heart, is visible in this Greenpeace handout image. The Aaptos kanuux was discovered for the first time ever during a Greenpeace research expedition to the Pribilof Canyon in the Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska. It was found at a depth of 700 feet using a Deep Work submarine on August 1, 2007.
