A slender mola washed up at the research station that I worked at this summer. My buddy juan took this shot. These fish are gorgeous and are a pelagic fish that rarely come up into our temperate waters. This is another sure sign of an El Niño year here in California
They grow to about a meter which is nothing compared to some of the other members of the molidae family.
This big guy is a Mola mola, also known as an ocean sunfish and they grow to weights over 1000kg!
