Ningyo (人魚, “human fish,” often translated as “mermaid”) is a fish-like creature from Japanese folklore. Anciently, it was described as having a monkey’s mouth with small teeth like a fish’s, shining golden scales, and a quiet voice like a skylark or a flute. Its flesh is pleasant-tasting, and anyone who eats it will attain remarkable longevity. However, catching a ningyo was believed to bring storms and misfortune, so fishermen who caught these creatures were said to throw them back into the sea. A ningyo washed onto a beach was considered an omen of war or calamity.  — Wikipedia
