A rare ‘tsunami fish’ has reappeared off the California coast. The fish is believed to have migrated from Japan to the West Coast on debris that floated across the Pacific following the catastrophic 2011 tsunami.

The Barred knifejaw has a distinct appearance with its seven vertical bars and black tip and was first spotted in American waters in 2014 before being spotted again late last year, reports the CNN.
