An opah is released with sensors to track temperatures as it dives off the California Coast in this undated handout photo provided by NOAA Fisheries/Southwest Fisheries Science Center. Researchers said in the journal Science on May 14, 2015, that opah, a deepwater denizen, is the first fish known to be fully warm-blooded, circulating heated blood throughout its body, enabling it to be a vigorous predator in frigid ocean depths.
