NEWSPIX: Rare sunfish found dead on Surigao Norte town shore

A giant sunfish more than two meters long and weighing about 150 kilos was found dead by fishermen in the waters off San Francisco town in Surigao del Norte province on Sunday.

Sunfish or mola is the heaviest known bony fish in the world and stays deep in the ocean and can only be seen when they come up to the surface, usually when sick.

Considered not edible but in some countries, like Japan, its meat is considered a delicacy, though. By GD Photos courtesy of Jojo Ferol
