Researchers discover world's first warm-blooded fish



Quote:
Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have discovered the world’s first warm-blooded fish – the opah.
Researchers discovered that the fish circulates heated blood through its body much like mammals and birds by constantly flapping its fins to move around. The fish is able to flap its winglike pectoral fins to move forward, unlike most fish. Its pectoral muscle is insulated from the cold water by a layer of fat.

Does not taste like chicken. Opah is by far my number 1 tasting fish. It and other moonfishes just melt in your mouth. I guess they just recently discovered that they are "warm blooded". I highly suggest trying it if you ever come across it on the menu. I know there is a small chain of restraunts called "Roy's" in parts of Florida, California, and Hawaii that serve it .
