Giant Oarfish measuring 3.5 meters or 11.4 feet found in a small fishing village Bovallstrand in western coast of Sweden. The scientific name of this giant herring is regalecus glesne, took 130 years to see that kind of specie again.
The giant fish, which is known as Oarfish, can grow from 8 meters up to 12 meters long, is the rarely seen regalecus, the world's longest bony fish. According to the Sea museum in Lysekil in Sweden, where the fish has been kept, we don’t know much about the species, but believe it lives in deep waters, at least 1000 meters (3280 feet) deep, and many believe it’s at the origin of the sea serpent myth,” or stories of mythological sea creatures like the Loch Ness Monster.
A passerby, Kurt Ove Eriksson said to daily Svenska Dagbladet, “Down at the water, there was something big floating. At first we thought it was a big piece of plastic. But then we saw an eye. I went down to check and saw that it was this extremely strange fish.” The House of the Sea museum in Lysekil, where the fish was taken, said in a statement, The last time we saw a King of Herrings in Sweden was in 1879. Oarfish is now kept frozen at a museum.
