because the fishermen filleted the carcass and tossed it overboard.

Why would you bother filleting just to toss it overboard?

They had planned to eat the headless mystery fish, but when they cooked it the flesh turned gelatinous, so they passed.

Ok wait for a bit, you find a fish floating dead for god knows how long and the first thing you think is jackpot we get free food? It could have been there for days. Darwin missed out on this one.

In fairness, in open water, it's rare for anything edible to sit on the surface for long.  There are too many scavengers (birds, etc.) that would have torn it apart.

Not that I'd have tried it...

I think you can tell when fish goes off.

I guess oarfish doesn't cook well.

Looks like a decapitated oarfish, turns gelatinous when cooked like a decapitated oarfish, must be a decapitated oarfish.

I'm going with basking shark. Every time a 'unidentified sea creature' washes up Its always a goddamn basking shark.

Dear Missiv:

I came here to point out that all of the mystery fish in Fark are Oar fish.

I accept that you pointed it out before I did.

FTFA: They had planned to eat the headless mystery fish, but when they cooked it the flesh turned gelatinous, so they passed.

1. Yeah, I concur with everybody else; despite the missing (presumably rotted) dorsal fin, the gelatinous flesh definitely says "Some species of oarfish" to me. It's a pretty unique trait in fish.

2. This dipshiat eats roadkill, doesn't he?

/Oarfish are oarsome.
//Groan.

Fluorescent Testicle: 1. Yeah, I concur with everybody else; despite the missing (presumably rotted) dorsal fin, the gelatinous flesh definitely says "Some species of oarfish

or a related lampriform fish" to me. It's a pretty unique trait in fish.

/FTFM.
//I actually don't know if ribbonfishes are gelatinous as well, but they're cousins, so I assume so.

If I had the 'shooping skillz, I would totes put "Roadkill" in place of "Chicken" on the Chicken of the Sea tuna can.

Hmm, a mystery animal worth taking pictures of. Better throw all physical evidence overboard.

I like these way these guys think!

What is it? I dunno, can we eat it?

Should hhave bagged up a little sample. DNA test coulda solved this mystery quick.

What kind of morons are going to cook a fish that's been dead for some unspecified amount of time in tropical waters?

Has anyone thought that this could be a decapitated oar fish?

What the hell is that?

Was lohan in the area recently? Maybe she lost one of her symbotyes.
 
2013-01-09 10:54:51 PM  
I concur. Oarfish is the most likely identification. I've seen photos and drawings of them and that's pretty much an oarfish of some species or other.
