Animal Oddity - Photo of Giant Shortrake RockFish

This March 2007 photo released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, shows Chris Wilson of NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, holding a 38-inch ruler up to a giant shortraker rockfish. The 44-inch, 60-pound female shortraker rockfish was caught 2,100 feet below the surface, south of the Pribilof Islands in the Bering Sea.
