Regalecus glesne is a remarkable fish. It is probably responsible for many sea serpent stories. Beyond simply explaining sailors' tales, learning about the biomechanical properties of the movement of the longest bony fish in the world could help lead to optimizations of biomimetic engineering for large and long transport vehicles.
Finally, study and promotion of such an amazing fish could lead to interest in the biological sciences. Who wouldn't want to study such living legends?
