Our Changing World - Sunfish

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:31 pm on 22 August 2013

It's longer than a grown man is tall, it weighs a ton and it can live to 100. A Sunfish is a mysterious deep-ocean creature. Sunfish are rarely seen, so when one washed up on a beach north of Auckland, marine biologists got excited. Soon we'll all be able to see it if we're interested. Veronika Meduna talks with marine scientists Tom Trnski and Andrew Stewart as they prepare a 2.1m sharp-tailed sunfish for display.
