Mola mola, also called the moon- or sunfish, a representative of the open ocean and found in all oceans around the globe. From the edge of the Arctic Circle to South Africa, from the south coast of Australia and New Zealand to Alaska in the north, there are sightings. The only exceptions are the waters around South America, so far there are no sightings.
The name Mola mola means "milestone" and he is in the world of fishes a real milestone. With up to 4 meters in length certainly not be overlooked and yet is rarely found in the open ocean. Absolutely peaceful and yet impressive, once you get him to see, this is certainly a memorable moment.
Certainly not an aquarium fish, with his size certainly no wonder. Also in very large display aquariums it should be, if at all, rarely or not at all found.
Im Aquarium in Palma habe ich diesen tollen Fisch auch schon gesehen.
so selten kommt der in großen Schauaquarien gar nicht vor, ich weiß z.B. von Exemplaren in Lissabon und Valencia
