According to Cadena Noticias, the oarfish, a still mysterious deep sea creature, was still alive when researchers from the Interdisciplinary Center of Marine Sciences (CICIMAR) and the National Polytechnic Institute of Fisheries (IPN) arrived at the scene. But sadly, it died minutes after. The fish remains will be used for science to learn more about this species.

In October 2013, two oarfish were found dead on beaches in the USA (Catalina Island and Oceanside).
