Drowned Merfolk by ~NightmareHound

The opposite of the real, natural merpeople. These are humans that have drowned in the sea, but keep living as this sort of corpse merpeople, who’s only thought is to drag other people to the water and drown them too. (Real merpeople hate these things with a passion, [much like humans would hate zombies] even though they rarely pose any threat to merpeople)

The fish attached to the corpse depends on where the person drowned but these are usually found only far in the ocean (so much rarer to find one with a more fresh/shallow water fish attached to them even if those fish also live in the salt water).
