Interesting find, discussed earlier on this very forum :wink:

Although no specimen of this species has been collected and described yet, it has been tentatively put in the Magnapinnidae family, so formally a Magnapinna sp.

There is a good chance the video was spliced to keep the action in a shortened format but that does not mean it was artificially created or modified. It is hard to decide at what point "photoshopping" for clarity or lighting becomes falsifying.
