There are more than 100,000 species of fish, all of which live in the ocean and the oceans are a vast habitat for the world’s most beautiful animals.
There are so many to choose from, from the largest fish of all, the giant Pacific swordfish, to the smallest, the rainbow trout, to some of the smallest fish in the world, the tiny red-tail bass.
But there is one thing that is nearly impossible to identify: the uglyfish.
They are the biggest fish in nature.
But they are not always what you might expect.
Take the ugly bluefin tuna, for example.
It’s so common that it’s considered a fish species, but the real world is a much more mysterious beast.
There have been sightings of this rare fish for more than a century, but few people know that it is actually an uncommon fish species.
To find out more about the elusive ugly fish and its history, we spoke to one of the world ‘s leading experts on the subject.
We asked him to shed some light on why these fish aren’t as common as you might think.
The ugly blue fin tuna is one of only a few fish species that can swim to depths of up to 15 metres, and it is found in the Mediterranean Sea.
The biggest threat to the bluefin is the tuna’s overgrazing by humans.
The fishing industry relies heavily on tuna for its bottom trawling operations.
But when humans take over, the tuna can get too big for their own good.
So when the fishing industry begins to worry about overgraveling, it’s time to take action.
When a man named Charles Lutsey spotted the giant, translucent bluefin, he realised it was a real, living creature.
“This was the first thing I saw,” he said.
“I was blown away by its size.”
So how does an average fisherman get to know an ugly bluefins name?
“I don’t know what to call them, but they’re not big, they’re pretty, and they’re cute,” he added.
So it wasn’t until he came across a couple of bluefin in the Philippines that he knew it was an uncommon species.
It was in the wild, but he wasn’t looking for a common catch.
Instead, he was looking for something different.
So Lutkson decided to take a closer look at the bluefin’s anatomy.
He started by taking a look at a sample of its skin.
He found that the blue fin had two sets of dorsal fins, one on each side of the body, which helped it get out of water quickly.
The second set of dorsal fin was bigger, so it could catch smaller fish and make them move.
“They look like giant tentacles,” Lutkers said.
He also noticed that the fish had long, pointed teeth.
“It was like a hook, and the hook could really hook anything,” he explained.
Lutksen was able to identify the species by comparing its anatomy to other bluefin.
“When you look at something like a tuna, you can easily tell that it has a lot of body fat,” he commented.
Lutzsey said the fact that the creature was so common in the oceans was because humans were catching these fish for their meat, and he was one of many people who took to the water.
But this wasn’t just about catching fish.
Luttons first fishing trip to the Philippines came in 1969.
It turned out that this fish had a much bigger catch than the average fisherman expected.
“The people in Manila were actually throwing fish in to make more money,” he recalled.
“So I caught two huge fish.
One big tuna and one huge, little bluefin.”
Lutkes eyes lit up.
“There were so many of them!”
He said that his first catch was a big fish called a pink-bellied whitehead.
“He was huge,” Luttys wife said.
Luts wife told him that when she caught him she didn’t expect him to make much money.
“But I told her he was a beautiful fish.
It had a beautiful head and a very long tail.
She thought I was nuts.”
Lutties next catch was an extremely rare and incredibly tasty one.
“You could catch a fish that was a size of a bus,” he remembered.
Luitks wife told Lutys that she had never seen a pink bellied white head before.
“She was really impressed,” Lutzks wife said with a smile.
LUTKES first trip to China, in 1969, also took place during the height of fishing.
LUtks wife was impressed by how the people of the region treated their fish.
“One of the biggest catches I’ve ever seen was of a big pink fish called an eel,” he told us.
“And they actually threw the fish in
