Something Fishy!!

Giant Herring

A Swedish man has discovered a giant herring.

The fish, which measures 3.5 metres – the first found in the Scandinavian country in more than 130 years -, was found dead in the small fishing village of Bovallstrand by passer-by Kurt Ove Eriksson.

He said: “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 Regalecus glesne, which is known as the King of Herrings or Giant Oarfish, has since been frozen.

It had a deep cut through its body and was missing its back fin, but will now be added to an exhibit on sea monsters.
