Canadian euchalon - the "candlefish"

In the waters of Canada a small fish called euchalon can be found. It's also known as the "candlefish." In the first century AD, the indigenous people from the region of Canada and also in Alaska and other cold waters used the “candlefish,” which is a type of smelt.

The small fish is so fatty that it can be dried, strung on a wick, and burned like a candle! Also the oil from the fish was used for making a candle. Over 15% of its total body weight is fat!
