(Seaside, OR) -- A rare deep-sea fish is capturing the attention of those in northwest Oregon. Officials say a 100-pound moonfish washed up on the shore in Seaside last week. Keith Chandler, the general manager of Seaside Aquarium, tells CNN that a moonfish on the Oregon coast is "uncommon to find." According to NOAA, not much is known about the species since the fish live in deep water. The species is usually found in temperate and tropical waters.
