Fish with human-like faces discovered in South Korea 

One may see two lines and two dots on their heads, which bear some
resemblance to human eyes. The fish's eyes are placed on the sides of
their heads, as it is common with the majority of fish species.
The "human eyes" of the fish are actually their nostrils.

I hope somebody decides to evolve (i.e. breed) a human-face fish species from these specimen. Would be quite a curiosity. You could make a fortune. In the very very long term, that is. Still, the result could be worthwile already in a couple of decades, I think, if you select for shorter generation times as well. Anybody interested?

I think it's in the works

The fish-lover would definitely try to increase the population of
human-like fish and attract fishermen's attention.

The potential might be great for a face "looking like" Jesus.
But if it's reproducible the price will diminish quickly.

I don't know. You could have fish with all sorts of famous faces, not just Jeebus. Would be a problem to get a lookalike of a contemporary famous person, but there are plenty of historical figures to pick from. Then these guys would become truly immortal. lol
