    I believe it's not albino...it is leucistic.
    There are many roads to travel
    Many things to do.

    I think it was in one of the FS magazines in the last few months. Still pretty cool.

    You're absolutely correct. An albino lacks all melanistic pigmentation; its eyes would be pink. A leucistic animal has an abnormal production of pigmentation in general, making it pale colored or patchy but still displaying some dark pigmentation. The dark eyes and melanistic patches on this sailfish are a giveaway.
