The sunfish is ‘FINE!’

Oct 14, 2020

A sunfish in Broad Cove was quite the attention-getter on Sunday, as enough people called the police to ask if it was okay that the Wareham Department of Natural Resources released a statement saying that “the sunfish is FINE.”

The sunfish is an exceptionally large fish, reaching an average of nearly six feet in length as an adult, and has an almost shark-like top fin that was visible above the waterline.

“We are aware of a sunfish in Broad Cove. We have checked on it, and it is doing normal sunfish activities. It’s swimming. It is not stranded or suffering,” the department said. “Don’t be jealous just because it’s not swimming weather anymore!”
