Online | Revealing the Secrets of the Rosemarkie Sunfish

Synopsis

Discovery at Rosemarkie
 
On 23 September 2020, a large ocean sunfish Mola Mola was stranded at Rosemarkie on the Black Isle peninsula north of Inverness. Typically found in warm, temperate waters, this surprise guest caused a stir in the local community and the sunfish was later collected for National Museums Scotland by the Scottish Marine Animal Strandings Scheme. Once it had arrived with us, the team set about dissecting the specimen to better understand how and why it had travelled so far from home.
