Rare Megamouth Shark Caught And Then...Eaten

Rare Megamouth Shark Caught

Only 40 Megamouth Sharks had ever been found.


The Megamouth Shark is a deep water shark and obviously rarely sighted. On March 30th, number 41 was caught by fisherman in the Philippines. What did they do? Read this from National Geographic:

"April 7, 2009—In just a short time, one of the rarest sharks in the world went from swimming in Philippine waters to simmering in coconut milk.

The 13-foot-long (4-meter-long) megamouth shark (pictured), caught on March 30 by mackerel fishers off the city of Donsol, was only the 41st megamouth shark ever found, according to WWF-Philippines.

Fishers brought the odd creature—which died during its capture—to local project manager Elson Aca of WWF, an international conservation nonprofit.

Aca immediately identified it as a megamouth shark and encouraged the fishers not to eat it."
