    The first discovery link is, apparently, about mechanical device named "mermaid", not living beings.

  • I'd like to clear up one thing that last link mentioned: Mermaids: The Body Found is, as Wikipedia describes it uncontroversially, a "docufiction" that uses CGI and relies on viewers not using common sense. Oct 24 '14 at 8:07

    You definitely sourced your claim well. I have particular respect for the Weekly World News. Oct 24 '14 at 14:38
  • Are photographs ever strong evidence of something?

They appear to be movie props, for Pirates of the Caribbean IV: On Stranger Tides.

This movie-related website has a nice image: Mermaid props
The foreground prop mermaid appears to be the top image on the plug site, and the image included in the question appears to be the background mermaid here.

Additionally, the mermaids appear to match the general aesthetic seen in the concept art (mentioned here):

(Incidentally, my cousin's husband got to work on these props!)
