Rare, Glow-In-The-Dark Fish Found On Cape Beach
The Center for Coastal Studies is excited about a rare fish found on a Cape Cod Beach.
The Center says last week, a Fisheries Research Director was walking on Coast Guard Beach in Eastham with his partner when she reached down and scooped up a lifeless silver fish.
It was quickly recognized as a Myctophid, a deep ocean fish that glows in the dark.
That's a species that lives almost a mile deep into the ocean, and the Center says the odds of encountering one on a Cape Beach are incredibly low.
