lol I followed your link!
I would never try to eat a half-eaten unknown fish!
But I would have kept a piece for scientists to analyze tho.

Found this on Yahoo - pretty strange looking creature.
"A mysterious sea creature featuring what appear to be horns on its head was discovered in the advanced stages of decomposition along the shoreline of Luis Siret Beach in Villaricos, Spain, on Thursday.
A woman first discovered the head and then found the body farther down the beach, according to ThinkSpain.com. The entire carcass with the head stretched 13 feet."

Could that be the inside of a sea animal like a spinal column??? Things look strange when its in the decaying process...
The baleen whale is similar, but thicker... Not thinking so.

It's a partially decomposed baleen whale.. those aren't horns, they're part of its jaw.

I'm going with Frilled Shark. I say this because the "horns" look to me like a decomposed jaw. The fish is twisted or laying in a way that puts the top of its head on the ground and its jaw pointing upwards like horns. After the flesh decomposed the boney parts were exposed.
I think the Frilled Shark is more likely than the Oarfish simply because of the size of the jaw.
