Candle Fish

Candle Fish (Thaleichthys pacificus), a fish so closely allied to the Smelt (q.v.) as to be sometimes placed in the same genus with the name Osmerus thaleichthys. It is a native of the American side of the Pacific, and is so exceedingly fat that, according to Gunther, "it is equally used as food and as candle."

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Hebrews 12:2
