at moment am on holiday in north cyprus and snorkelling most days in med. this week i have come across a fish i have never seen in this bay before. its about 18 inches long, very thin like a pencil, white or transparent and its eye - only seems to be one - is a quarter of way down its body. in front of the eye seems to be a piece of skin in the shape of a sword. its like a small swordfish. its tail is about 3 inches long and looks like a piece of thin wire. anyone seen this while swimming off turkey??

What a tasty little beast! Seriously, zargana is very tasty, especially if fried in batter, even though the bluish bones look a bit funny.

You should try it someday.

you will be pleased to know that the zargana is not the fish i have seen. if i saw that i might give snorkelling up!!

 

the fish i saw was a quite meek compared to that. someone has told me it is part of the anchovy family.

 

i did say it looked like a small swordfish but maybe that was an exaggeation. but the mouth was long and narrow like a thin sword or blade.

 

anyway snorkelling over last night as now back in england and getting used to wearing a sweater - its only 12 degrees!!!
