Reading Linda and Bill's journal about their circumnavigation on S/Y Valiam, I stumbled over this photo. Just to get a better look I have rotated the pic here. They caught it while being in 1000 m depth after having left Rodrigues for Mauritius.
Just for the records, the local fishing experts...)) have no clue neither what kind of fish it can be, nor if it had been edible...although there are theories and stories of similar fish caught here but in depth of either 60 or 200m...
Maybe someone can enlighten us...?
