The oarfish is native to temperate and tropical oceans of the world. They live in deep water and are rarely seen. What we know about the oarfish comes from those washed up onto shore after a storm, or because they are sick and dying. The oarfish has a long, thin and tapering ribbon-like body. The largest oarfish ever found was 36 feet in length. The oarfish may have been responsible for many of the sea monster and sea serpent stories by ancient mariners.
