A close look at the fish reveals some detailed markings on its skin.

Another photo shows the ‘tattooed’ fish beside another fish that appears to be of the same size and type, but without any markings on its skin. A part of the ‘tattooed’ fish’s flesh near the tail is missing, while the other fish looks like it is in the process of being gutted and cleaned by a man.

Many speculate the markings were caused by some trash in the sea.

Many online users who saw the photo speculate that the markings or ‘tattoos’ are due to some trash, perhaps plastic or fabric, with prints on it that got stuck to the fish’s body. One comment read:

“This was probably caused by some sort of trash / fabric that had been embedded in the fish’s skin and over time imprinted this design onto it. Just a thought.” – Steve Clark
