The only ones I've heard of have come from the same general area (the cape, Vineyard, etc). There was some speculation that it might have been caused by PCBs, but scientists apparently disproved that some 7 years ago. This fish was a little undersized, 30" long and 8 1/2 lbs. They're referred to as "pug nosed" and apparently it's a naturally occurring birth defect.
