Hirasaka Hiroshi, a Japanese fisherman was stunned when he pulled the big fish looks old with its wide open mouth and huge head. It certainly looks like some kind of freak eel, but it's actually a wolfish.

Normally the wolfish is about three feet long, but the monster caught by Mr. Hirosihi was about six feet in length. The creature has developed a reputation due to its size and fearsome appearance and one type of the species featured on the Animal Planet series River Monsters.

Wolfish are to be found on the ocean floors of the Atlantic and Pacific. They very rarely emerge from the depths. Hiroshi flew twice to the island of Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan’s major islands, over three months before managing to land the giant fish.

It was worth flying to [Hokkaido] twice within three months. This guy is super cool.
Hiroshi said.

No explanation has been given for the size of the fish.

According to some reports, it may have mutated as a result of the destruction of the Fukushima nuclear power plant in the 2011 Japanese tsunami. The fish was caught around 400 miles from the site of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster, which has raised questions about the ecological impact.

The nuclear power plant meltdown was produced by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake in 2011. The earthquake knocked out nuclear plant's cooling system, causing three reactor cores to melt and spew radiation into the ocean. In the years since, fish have been caught in the waters nearby with as much as 2,500 times the legal safe radiation limit.
