Devices backed by an international standard rating of IP68 are deemed fit enough to withstand dust, dirt and sand, and are resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to thirty minutes.

I know the small through hull mounted ones work for finding lobsters in the Bahamas.

They appear to come from a common manufacturer, under the "people also bought" section there a number of others that look the same. Some are less expensive.

we have used a go pro for years and it works great for our bottom fishing depts.. usually out to 200' not sure what the depth rating is for the camera and housing; i'm sure its in the manual somewhere. I built a larger housing that holds the Gopro housing and camera just in case a shark or larger fish decides they want to take a bite. initially we used a fishing rod to lower the housing up and down but now I have a downrigger that we attach the housing to.. pretty cool rig and it works very well.
you can see the housing if you search "DIY GoPro underwater housing" in the Photo section.
