The ocean sunfish, or mola, is a family of fish native to all tropical and temperate oceans. The most common ocean sunfish is the roundtailed or mola mola. Although the average size is about 6 feet long, the mola mola are known to grow up to 11 feet long and almost 5,000 pounds in weight. They look very strange, appearing to be only "half-a-fish." It looks like they were cut in half just behind the dorsal and anal fins. Play the following videos to learn more about the sunfish.
