It’s A River Monsters Roundup, Featuring The Greenland Shark And Skate
It’s been a BIG week for fish in the news and we’re bringing you two incredible stories involving two rare beasts as seen on River Monsters: the skate and the Greenland shark!
A fisherman in Florida made what will likely be the greatest catch of his life. He hooked a 14-foot, 800-pound skate off the coast of Miami Beach, according to ABC News, before tagging it and releasing it back into the water.
In Canada, two good Samaritans helped a sick Greenland shark they saw thrashing on the shores of Newfoundland. As they approached it, they discovered a two-foot hunk of moose meat stuck in the shark’s mouth and removed it using a rope. After that, the shark swam away. Only in Canada! Or maybe Maine… Anyway, you can read more about the shark via Yahoo! News Canada.
