Opah


Unique Opah Wall Light

Opah has historically been poorly studied. Particularly valued by restaurants, this exotic deep water fish is generally harvested in small but nevertheless significant quantities. Oceanic and apparently solitary they feed on midwinter fishes and invertebrates, mainly squids. They swim by flapping their pectoral fins.

The facts collected to describe each fish were pulled from various sources over the internet by Sealight Gallery's staff. Sealight wants to acknowledge that we did not write any of the material in regard to the descriptions, but we found the information collected fascinating. We hope that in reprinting it readers will be inspired by it to save and preserve the ocean and all of her glory.
