I found this a fascinating read. The Curious Case Of The Orang Ikan

Merbeings. Whether you believe they are possible are not, it is undeniable that half human/half fish beings are a recurring theme around the world and across cultural divides. There is an interesting case that was reported by Japanese soldiers from the Kei Islands of Indonesia in 1943.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

I know what it is called.  Doesn't make it real.

It's worth remembering that artists' impressions of multiple eyewitness accounts of strange creatures are to be taken with a pinch of salt.

The Victorian drawings of animals from the New World and distant lands were almost always far off the mark.

Just because someone reported it doesn't make it real, I could report I saw bigfoot outside my house, and make "evidence" and get media attention. Like these people did I doubt any mermaids exist, and if they do, i'll dye my hair green.

Umm, what? Victorian era zoological illustrations were of such a high quality that they were only superseded by photography. The Victorian era is basically the second half of the 19th century, you know.
