A rare walking fish that was recently declared endangered after not being seen for 22 years has been spotted in the depths of a marine park off Tasmania's rugged south-west coast.

A member of the anglerfish family, the pink handfish has only been spotted in the wild five times, and was last seen by a recreational diver off the coast of the Tasman Peninsula, south-east of Hobart, in 1999.

It was believed the handfish were a shallow water species — but they are now thought to dwell much deeper.
