This animation shows the 2012 time-series of ice extent 다운로드. The black area represents the daily average (median) sea ice from 1979-2000.

Opah have something of a cult following partly because of their tasty meat and partly because of their odd appearance 헬싱 ova 다운로드.

But, they are such a rare catch for fishermen that little is known about them, again from Mike Lee:

What little scientists know about opah suggests they are a highly migratory species that can quickly travel long distances 고등래퍼2 2화.
