The first pic seems like a bad photoshop job...But never know.(also there are only about 3 or may be 4 people holding such a large fish firmly with so much ease!)... but, as I said before "never know".There are strange things out there....Whats that species anyway?

Regards,
Madhur.

Hi Guys,

Someone had posted this earlier asking for the name to which I had responded and posted some additional underwater pictures. It is an Oarfish in this case a Giant Oarfish they exist and it is not a fake. They are often caught in Malaysia.

The first picture is in Malaysia I believe. The second one is in California USA.

if i ever catch something of those proportions if would definately be a catch and release. it looks like something out of a B grade 50s sci fi film.
