Weird Sea Creature  Sea-creature1

Carolyn Hoffman was walking along the beach in Delray Beach on Jan. 5 with her husband when something odd caught her eye.

A long, ribbon-shaped fish with a large, bulging eye had washed up in the surf. “It just rolled up on the beach in front of us,” Hoffman said. “I’ve never seen anything shaped like that.”

Her husband, Harry Furrevig, is a fisherman, so Hoffman decided to take his photo with this odd sea creature to add to his collection of fishing photos.

“Let’s fillet this and eat it,” Furrevig told her jokingly. “I said no thanks,” Hoffman said. Palm Beach Atlantic University biology professor Ray Waldner, an ichthyologist, said the fish is probably an oarfish – a fish in a family by itself, the longest of the bony fishes.
It could also be a “dealfish,” Waldner said.
