Check this out, ATS. What do you think about this fish? I've never heard of one of these. This just goes to show that no matter how much you know or think you know, there's always more to know and learn.

I wonder if they are going to eat it? I wonder if it tastes as good as the little sunfish we get around here? Does it taste better with lemon? I wonder if it is better broiled or deepfried?

I seem to be getting a little hungry after looking at that. S&F

I've been in the Water with one surfing on Cape Cod. At first I saw a huge dorsal fin and thought it was a shark, but someone said it was a Sunfish and proceeded to paddle after it. He later told me they often lie on their sides, almost floating to catch the sun and you can pet them. Somewhat rare to see on the Cape.

I reported my siting on website that spots sunfish. oceansunfish.org...

Also called mola-mola.

They're really freaky looking things.

These fish are huge. I'm glad they're not carnivores! I wonder if harks try to eat them or if they have to fight with Whales for food.

I once hopped under a kelp patty in SoCal (Diving) and lo and behold there was a giant sunfish. I had never before seen one but it did not stop me from a slow approach. Believe it or not; I got to pet him/her. Right on the face. It was one of the coolest moments I have ever had as a diver.
