Opah Sentence Examples
Besides the commoner kinds of fishes, sharks, the torsk, opah and sunfish occur.
OPAH (Lampris lun g), a pelagic fish, the affinities of which are still a puzzle to ichthyologists.
The name opah, which is now generally used, is derived from the statement of a native of the coast of Guinea who happened to be in England when the first specimen was exhibited (1750), and who thought he recognized in it a fish well known by that name in his native country.
In its gorgeous colours the opah surpasses even the dolphins, all the fins being of a bright scarlet.
