Albino Sailfish, The Real Deal!

We first saw what appeared to be an albino sailfish back in 2008. The image did not have a accompanying story with it and I had my doubts about it truly being and albino. Here are some incredible photos from just a couple of months ago near our old fishing grounds in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. As you can see there are images of the fish from several angles and there is no mistake about this one, it is definitely an albino sailfish! It’s extremely rare that any albino fish would grow this size, but a sailfish is the fastest fish in the sea, which clearly works to its advantage when avoiding predators!

“They were flipping out because they’ve never seen anything like that in their lives, and they started looking at the eyes, and the eyes were red and pink, and they started hollering out albino, albino, and then they called into the marina, and that’s when we learned that it was a special thing.”
