The video is posted on the Facebook page of Wavelength Reef Cruises, an Eco-tourism travel agency. They also shared how it is ‘incredible rare’ to spot this fish. Further, they added the name of the people who recorded the creature.
“Sightings of swimming Oarfish are incredibly rare. They live in deep open ocean between 20m and 200m so seeing one in shallow reef water is really incredible. According to the Australian Museum, although different species have been described there is now thought to be only one species. The largest specimens can reach 11m making them the longest bony fish the world. Some researchers have reported that they can give off electric shocks,” they added as a part of their caption.
