THE crew of a fishing boat based in Denia hauled in a shark along with their catch on Monday, June 8. A shark catch is not that unusual.
This, however, was no ordinary shark; it was three metres in length and weighed around 1,000 kilos.
The sailors nervously landed their catch but had to take extreme care with such a large animal, thought to be a basking shark.
In order to return the shark to the sea, the crew had to resort to using a hoist. The sheer size of the animal attracted plenty of attention on the marina as the fishermen lifted the creature back into the water.
