  • Giant, 11-Foot Herring Turns Up in Sweden

    AFP
    A man measures the rare specimen of a species known as the 'King of Herrings' or Giant Oarfish.

    Called the King of Herrings, an 11-foot fish was discovered on a beach in Sweden, the first time the fish has been seen in more than 130 years.
    The Regalecus glesne, known as the King of Herrings or Giant Oarfish, was found dead in the small fishing village of Bovallstrand on Sweden's west coast, about 56 miles from the Norwegian border, reported the AFP.
    The specimen uncovered, while a staggering 11.4 feet long, is surprisingly small for the King of Herrings. The fish can reportedly reach nearly 40 feet in length and can weigh as much as 600 pounds.

          It's a bloomin sea serpent!

          I'm curious; if the fish hasn't been seen in 130 years, how do we have a color photo of one?

            We need to throw that sucker on the BBQ! Well, at that size we might need two end to end, but you get the idea

              They photographed the one they found, but haven't seen one previously for 130 years.
