11:17 pm
glow these fish are a little bit weak from being brought up. >> reporter: experts say because rock fish are deep water fish they have to be released the right way to recompress. >> they need a little bit of help. they need to get down to the point where they are knut rally bouyant and they can swim away on their own. >> reporter: he is working with marine biologists to develop techniques to save them and took us out on his boat, the houley cat, to show us how. >> all right. >> reporter: when they are reeled in from 180 feet down rock fish develop an air pocket to survive. >> things get pushed out, their eyes might bug out. >> reporter: all that air makes them float and prevents them from going back down on their own. >> that can all be reversed. >> reversed by lowering them back down to depth. this video from researchers show the rock fish being lowered down in a milk crate. you can see the bloated fish literally shrink down to normal and swim away.
11:18 pm
