Rare sunfish near Texel island

This video says about itself:

The first-ever sighting and recording of a species of sunfish in the Galápagos is made.

Ecomare museum on Texel island in the Netherlands reports that last Sunday a ocean sunfish, rare for the Netherlands, was seen.

The fish swam near the harbour of De Cocksdorp village. It was about 80-90 centimeter in size, so still a juvenile.

De Cocksdorp in winter: here.

Ameland sunfish: here.
