A group of fishermen on a reservoir in the Córdoba province of Argentina landed something a little bit different. The fish they caught had an extra eye.
The reservoir where the three-eyed wolffish was reeled in has hot water from a nearby nuclear facility pumped into it, prompting concern among locals.
Oh. My. Gosh. Obligatory reference:
The water discharge from the nuke plant is mentioned but this water should not be radioactive. And, I’m not certain at this point if that is an eye or tumor or injury or something else. I could find no more info on how often this mutation occurs. But, here is a picture of a normal wolf fish (Hoplias aimara). Commence freak out.
