A fisher was in for a numerous trauma subsequent he grabbed a bizarre-looking fish with its sights bulging out while trawling off the coast of Norway, The Sun records. Oscar Lundahl, 19, serves as a guide for the fishing company Nordic Sea Angling and stated that he was fishing for a blue halibut but settled up getting “a bit dinosaur-like” fish.

“We were seeing for blue halibut which is a unique variety of about five miles offshore. I had four hooks on one line and felt something truly huge at the edge of it. It took me about 30 minutes to reel it in because it was 800 meters underwater. There were two halibut on two of the hooks and I was really pleased about that and then I saw there was something different,” Oscar Lundahl told, The Sun reports.

A picture of the fish has been yielded on Twitter by Baja Expeditions. Witness for yourself:

The photograph of the fish has gone viral on social media and is being extensively circulated across the internet. Netizens, in fact, discovered it unmanageable to believe their sights.


What Oscar Lundahl found is a ratfish while its Latin name Chimaeras Monstrosa Linnaeus is obtained from a Greek mythical beast with the peak of a lion and tailpiece of a dragon, The Sun revealed in its report. Ratfish live in deep waters and are inoffensive to humans.

“It was pretty unusual. I have never seen anything like it before. It just looked weird, a bit dinosaur-like. I didn’t know what it was but my colleague did,” Oscar Lundahl stated while describing the fish.

The fish, nonetheless, did not survive owing to the sudden change in pressure following which Oscar took it home and prepared it. “Despite its ugly display, it was really tasty. It is a bit like cod but tastier,” Oscar Lundahl replied.
