Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola) in Barkely Sound, off Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.  These large open ocean fish sometimes appear in these waters in summer when warm southern currents are swept up the west coast, but they do not do well in the cold water.  This doomed fish is covered in parasites and has had it top dorsal fin ripped off, most likely by Sea Lions.
