Deep Divers! Yo-yo Divers!

A tagging study of Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola) in the Northwest Atlantic, recorded a sunfish reaching a maximum depth of 844m.

Ocean sunfish exhibit daily vertical movement, visiting deeper depths numerous times during the day, with warm-up breaks in between at or near the surface. At night they tend to remain in shallower waters.
