"Ten days later, incredibly, as if the fish just really wanted to be found, the ocean delivered a fourth specimen at the same beach, and this time I flew down,” Nyegaard remembered.
"I arrived in the dark and a kind local drove me down to the beach and shone the headlights on the fish. I got out and just stood there, under the stars with the ocean rolling in and the huge fish just lying there on the beach, a stranded, lost behemoth, both sad and lonely looking but also beautiful in the weirdest way," she said. "I could see straight away this was the mystery fish. It was so different than the other two species, and it was one of the most amazing moments in my life.”
