Stanley Yacht Services: Sunfish Sunday!

Sunfish Sunday!

Well, the weather here in South Florida has hampered our work today so we thought we'd spend sometime with the Ocean Sunfish [Mola mola], of course! Our Captain has actually seen one of these big baskers, living up to its name, sunbathing on the surface of the waters off Hawaii. As it bobbed along nearby, little did our Captain realize the fish - which looks like a finned frisbee and can weigh up to 5,000 lbs - is quite the menu item(s) in Japan. So, that Sunfish was spared (not speared).

Want to join us as we learn more about this truly interesting ocean occupant? Watch:



Well, there you have it. Want more Mola mola? Visit Dr. Tierney Thys' very informative website. And enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
