Hawaii anglers are debating the identity of a mystery fish, which was hauled up from the deep lacking its head — presumably thanks to a shark or other predator. The narrow, seven-foot-fish might be an oarfish or Hawaiian ridge scabbardfish, both of which swim at great depths and are infrequently encountered by humans. Scientists don't have much to go on, since the fishermen behind the haul filleted the fish and then threw the carcass into the sea. Whatever its identity, it was definitely not a delicious fish: "When they cooked it, the flesh turned gelatinous, so they passed." We bet they did. [Source]
