Giant oarfish washes up on Catalina Island beach

A 15-foot long oarfish carcass was found washed up on the beach in Catalina island. The research team said that it was a rare discovery as Oarfish spend their time deep below the sea surface, and are rarely seen.oarfish_1433681063840

Amy Catalao, a conservation coordinator for the non-profit Catalina Island Conservancy stated that the fish had extraordinarily long ovaries, and was washed up minutes before the carcass was found. In October 2013, 18-foot long oarfish washed up on Catalina island, and another carcass washed up on a beach in north of San Diego, after a  few days. The carcass was spotted on Monday when a bird survey was conducted by the Catalina Island Conservancy.

John Lundberg, curator of ichthyology at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Drexel University in Philadelphia stated that several of these giant creatures make landfall in Baja California, Mexico. It remains unclear why yhr fish was washed up and there is so much research needed to reveal regarding these creatures, added Lundberg. According to Lundberg, the fish which lives in deep water might have come close to the surface because these is some disturbance, causing their death or it could be old age.

In the earlier times, sailors thought that the mysterious creature was a sea serpent, and Japanese people thought that oarfish can predict earthquakes. These serpent-like creatures are known to grow more than 20-feet. The head, guts, reproductive tracts and other parts will be studied  by Assistant professor of biological science Misty Paig-Ttan and her students at the California State University, Fullerton.

Oarfish generate a lot of interest among scientists as they live in the largely unknown zone of the oceanic mesopelagic zone, a portion of the ocean that is about 600 to 3,280 feet bellow the surface.
