Big shark in Pakistan - level 2, A12
This big shark is 12 meters long. It is 7 tons. When the fishermen saw it 150 kilometers from land in the Arabian Sea, it was already dead. There was a problem with how to get such a big shark to land.
The fishermen took him to Karachi in Pakistan. The shark was so heavy that they had to use machines to get him to land. In the beginning they tried to get the shark from the water with two machines but in the end they had to use a third machine to get the shark to land.
A lot of people wanted to see the shark, so they came to the port to see one of the biggest sharks which was caught by people. The fishermen sold the shark for 19 000 US dollars.
This type of shark is not dangerous to people because it usually eats only plankton.
