Tropical fish on Dutch beach again

This video says about itself:

9 April 2012

This video was taken in shallow water off Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas. The Unicorn [Leatherjacket] Filefish is normally a deep water fish but is occasionally seen in shallow water. You can see the fish change its coloring as it swims away.

Recently, a tropical fish, an oceanic puffer, beached on Texel island in the Netherlands. The first time ever for that species in that country, and in the whole North Sea.

It turns out that a few days before this, another tropical species beached near ‘s-Gravenzande, more to the south in the Netherlands.

It was a unicorn leatherjacket filefish. Also, the first time ever in the North Sea.
