The Giant Oarfish Resembles A Sea Monster
The giant oarfish is the world’s longest bony fish. They can reach a length of 110 feet. The biggest oarfish ever recorded weighed 600 pounds. Whenever these deep-sea fish wash up on shore, they make headlines because they are just gigantic. Because of their size, they have also been confused as “sea serpents” on numerous occasions. They are silver with dark markings and swim in an undulating manner. They are named after their long, oar-shaped fins. Very little is known about these creatures. Their diet consists of krill, other small crustaceans, fish, and squid. The adults tend to be solitary.
