What the heck kind of fish is this?

Don't recognize this fish? Well, it was the subject of a big rhubarb a couple months ago, so you should remember the species. Not easy when you get a new view of it, huh?

OK, enough of the anticipation; it's an Oarfish. Although this one isn't extremely long, we are treated to a close up of an extremely strange head.

So, what's the story with this 13'-7" Oarfish? Well, it was washed up on a Japanese beach. It was then promptly taken and put to culinary use.

So, are there more Oarfish washing up on beaches or are they just getting more press? Further, I wonder if this guy check the radioactivity level in the fish before making fillets? Further still, does this mean another tsunami is going to hit Japan?
