Strange and rare shrimp-like fish found in Solomon Islands village

A seemingly strange and rare fish having the looks of a 'shrimp' has been found in the coastal waters of Marau Sound in a village called Marau'apa in the Solomon Islands on April 2 2008.

According to the local fisherfolk, this unknown fish is rare to catch and they say is very good to eat.

The fish was photographed by Mr Nixon Aranani, a local University of the South Pacific marine science graduate currently working in Honiara.

It is understood that alot of Solomon Islanders haven't seen any fish like this before, and would be very useful if a fish expert or taxonomist can identify this specimen and hopefully confirm that it is truly safe to eat.
