The scientific name of the “opah” is Lampris Guttatus, of the Lampridae family that reach 120 centimeters in length on average, although there is a record of some specimens up to two meters. The average weight is up to 270 kilos. Its scales are orange, although it has pink and white tones.
Some people consider that this fish may be a new species that can advertise the sisms, such as the oar fish. The rowing fish usually has an average length of 15 meters and it is considered that its sighting on the surface may mean that in a few days later a strong movement will shake the earth.
