I doubt this was photographed

I doubt this was photographed at the grid position given. See a remarkably similar picture at http://piscesfleet.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/sea-monster-washes-up-on-main-....

location

I agree with Mydaea - certainly not at an inland site.

Looks like the same fish has

Looks like the same fish has been snapped from different angles and photoshopped into one image. Oarfish alright, but from where? Amazing fish.

Oarfish

Oarfish alright but washed up on beach at Cabo san Lucas at the southern tip of Baja California. Glad I,m not a diver!

They are a deep water species

They are a deep water species and are usually dead or dieing if seen at the surface. If I was going in the water off Baja I'd be more worried about the Humbolt Squid
