    Solved! (Where did the Big Eye In The Sea come from?)
    Deep Sea News | Oct. 12, 2012
    Sönke Johnsen a Professor of Biology and colleague of mine at Duke University…is an expert on everything visual in marine organisms including transparency, cryptic coloration, bioluminescence, ultraviolet protection, and of course vision.  He responded:

    I’m fairly sure it’s just the eye of a large scombrid, likely a swordfish or marlin. They get seriously big, but people don’t realize it because most of the eye is inside the head.

    He then went a step further and then emailed a few of his colleagues:

    Talked with some colleagues—definitely a swordfish eye.

    There you have it.  New reports on the eye also mention the presence of bones which obviously rules out the giant squid!
    More…

  5. DERPus Maximus Says:

    Somewhere out there, there’s a swordfish that keeps swimming in circles.
