Has anyone heard of this fish? Its called an oarfish and is supposedly the source of many myths about sea monsters, it can apparently grow up to 60 feet long, and can live with half of its body cut off. Check out the video as well, you kinda have to look a bit hard.

I was thinking, 60 feet long, that equals two sixty foot long filets, equals good eatin!

The crest on it looks magnificent, though I wonder how evolution hasn't killed it yet. I can't imagine that its very fast, and a sixty foot long target doesn't seem to hard to catch

On the Discovery Channel I saw a video of an oarfish being draged on shore and it was still alive the whole time. It look kinda cool with its gills moving and such.

an Oarfish was alledgedly caught this summer on the east coast of England... the story was a bit unbeleivable about it being caught (woman claimed she caught it while mackerel fishing) I beleive like many others of my angling freinds that it was washed ashore already dead. but nonetheless a beautiful fish. I too first read about it in Undersea Adventure by Willard Price about 20 years ago. a very good series of books, although would probably class them as childish now, but it did ignite an enthusiasim that never left me.

Reminds me of a fish I saw in Hawaii. They have some cool crap down there. Not as interesting as this one of course.
