Giant fishmen can range in height from 70 -100 feet. They are aquatic and can breathe air as well. They are accustomed to living in the colder waters of the Atlantic Ocean, primarily in the Gulf of Maine. Many have been seen as far north as Nova Scotia and a few were spotted off Cape Breton Island.
