'Faceless' fish, last seen in 1873, found off Australia

A "faceless" deep-sea fish not seen for more than a century has been rediscovered by a team of international scientists while they researched the depths of a massive abyss off Australia's east coast.

The mission called "Sampling the Abyss", launched by Museums Victoria, also found species believed to be new to science.
