Don't believe anyone knows how they were first created even to this day. First created in the mid 80's on some SE fish farm, theories abound.

There was interview with someone from the fish farm that alledgedly created them, saying it was a test tube creation with three species, but no one really believes that article.

The severum part came from that article, as it was one of the 3 species supposed used in the test tube gene splicing. But I doubt that a fish farm could afford gene splicing at the cost it would take today, let alone the cost of it 25 years ago.
