This is a cartilaginous fish called Rfedortsov European Chimera (Latin Chimaera monstrosa). This species can be found in the Eastern Atlantic ranging from Iceland and Norway to the Mediterranean Sea and off the coast of South Africa, as well as the Barents Sea at a depth of up to 1,400 m.

This species can grow up to 1.5 meters in length and eats molluscs and small fish. It gives birth by laying eggs, the Instagram image description revealed.

Marine biologists and environmentalists are worried about these species as they can get impacted severely by the effect of climate change on the temperature in the deep sea and its effect on the food chain. These species can even become extinct because of the above reasons Beloit Daily News reported.
