I watched the episode on Animal Planet last night. It was a doozy. Fake, but a doozy of a dossier.

On “Mermaids: The New Evidence,” Animal Planet revisited its documentary about the existence of mermaids from last year, “Mermaids: The Body Found.” Biologist Dr. Paul Robertson returned with what appeared to be brand new footage of the alleged mythical creatures, allegedly taken this spring in the Greenland Sea.
Viewers were glued to the TV watching the new special, getting “Mermaids: The New Evidence” trending on Twitter.
But the whole thing is a hoax — the original documentary was revealed to be staged. Discovery, Animal Planet’s parent company, described the program as “science fiction” based on “scientific theory.”
The executive producer of “Mermaids: The New Evidence” told the Mother Nature Network that he wanted people to think it was real — that’s why they made it look like a documentary.
And The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration maintains, “Mermaids: The New Evidence” is just entertainment. Its website reads: “No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Why, then, do they occupy the collective unconscious of nearly all seafaring peoples? That’s a question best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists.”

Roger don't deny the fact that the military keeps so many things within their little "community hole" I'm in the military. Grew up in a family who served in the military. I also married a military officer. There are just things that they keep from the public.

Mermaids: The Body Found was/is fake. The researchers were actors check IMDB. (LINK)
After “Mermaids: The Body Found” premiered, NOAA issued a statement: “No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Why, then, do they occupy the collective unconscious of nearly all seafaring peoples? That’s a question best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists.”
But we still wonder.
