DARE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) – A lancetfish drifted into shore near Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head Monday.
Daryl Law from the North Carolina Aquarium told our sister station WAVY the fish drifted in at the south pier.
The pier is part of North Carolina Aquariums.
Lancetfish rarely come close to shore, leading officials to think something was wrong with it. The fish was released back into the water.
