Deep Dweller (Ex)

Deep merfolk are immune to damage from water pressure; their bodies adjust instantly to different depths.

Semitransparent (Ex)

Deep merfolk are very difficult to spot while they are underwater. So long as they are at least 10 feet underwater, deep merfolk gain concealment and can use the Stealth skill while moving at their normal speed without penalty.

In the ocean depths (about 3,000 feet deep or more), this benefit improves to total concealment.

Sprint (Ex)

A deep merfolk can charge or withdraw at up to 3 times its swim speed.
