Fishermen caught a weird fish in their net off the Newfoundland Coast ehixh has wings like a bird and creepy green eyes like something out of a horror movie.





Work on a fishing trawler off Newfoundland came to a halt when a mysterious and bizarre fish came up in the catch. CBC News wrote that it “looks somewhat like a bird, with a long, pointy snout, bright neon green eyes and ribbed fins that resemble feathered wings.”

The Daily Star, a tabloid in the U.K., called it a “winged fish with evil eyes.”

“All the production stopped and everything so everybody could check it out,” fisherman Scott Tanner told CBC News. “There’s lots of other weird stuff that comes out [of the ocean] but that one definitely stood out.”
The 58-foot trawler was on a 42-day trip fishing for cod and redfish in waters off the Grand Banks and St. Pierre and Miquelon when the unusual fish came up as by-catch.


The best guess from the article is that this is a Chimera. What says ATS? Chimera or something else?


The California Academy of Sciences says chimaeras are a group of cartilaginous fish that branched off from sharks nearly 400 million years ago …

The longnose variety is found off Nova Scotia and in various other parts of the Atlantic Ocean. They feed on shrimp and crabs and are harmless to humans …

Looks like a deep sea shark of some kind to me. It does look familiar, and the eyes definitely look deep sea. It happens occasionally that someone will catch something from the deep out of its depth

I don't know if I'd say mysterious...


Dalhousie University biology professor Jeffrey Hutchings looked at the photo and told CBC News that it indeed looks like a long-nose chimaera (aka a knifenose chimaera), adding that they are quite uncommon, being found at depths ranging from 660 to 6,560 feet.


Certainly cool! Thanks for sharing it with us. Weird looking bugger (not you, the fish).

Awww those eyes aren't evil. He's cute. The eyes.

The rest is a hideous abomination I never want to be in physical proximity to.

Interesting stuff certainly comes out of our oceans. What a mysterious place.

That looks like a fish that should be deep fried, rather than broiled.

Long-nosed chimaera. Branched off from sharks a long time ago. Here's plenty of google-fu'ed pictures for you:

It is doubtless a Chimera, but I see others have figured this out already.

Several years ago some washed up after disasters, and people, willfully forgetting that life began in water, attributed the creatures to extraterrestrial sources. We live in the era of clickbait.

Rhinochimaeridae apparently.



Rhinochimaeridae

Looks sad, being out of the water will do that to a fish.

Are you freaking kidding me?!? Nothing like'em. I've shot thousands of them, they are very different.
