Trending Now: Insane Looking Mutant Fish Caught in Japan!

A+ A-

We may have seen a lot of movies about animal mutations in some horror films, but the story of this
man who caught this unusual giant fish in Japan now circulates the world wide web.

This giant fish was pulled out of the ocean near the site of the Fukushima nuclear accident. The vast fish looks prehistoric with its gaping mouth and vast head.

Japanese fisherman Hirasaka Hiroshi was pleasantly surprised when his fishing trip yielded a 2 meter long Wolffish that some are calling a mutant. He tweeted a photo of himself with his catch saying it was a wolffish.

"It was worth flying to [Hokkaido] twice within three months. This guy is super cool." He wrote.

The Atlantic wolffish (Anarhichas lupus), also known as the seawolf, Atlantic catfish, ocean catfish, devil fish, wolf eel (the common name for its Pacific relative), woof or sea cat, is a marine fish, the largest of the wolffish family Anarhichadidae. The numbers of the Atlantic wolffish are rapidly being depleted, most likely due to overfishing and bycatch, and is currently a Species of Concern according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service.

This kind of fish commonly live in the Pacific and Atlantic ocean and as deep sea dwellers, they rarely are seen away from the ocean floor.
