The Oarfish with admirers, at Anna Marie Island, South of Tampa Bay, Florida, March 2002.
Last Updated: 11 June 2010
Hi redheadsrq. Thank you for your comment. It's pretty amazing that you saw this fish. I'm envious. Not only haven't I been to Tampa Bay (I'll remedy that one day), but I also haven't seen an oarfish outside of a museum. What I'd really like is to see one while diving. I don't suppose anyone can send me an underwater photo of an oarfish to post on the fact sheet ...
