A very big fish – level 1

22-10-2021 15:00

Fishermen catch tuna fish in the Mediterranean Sea. Tuna are big fish. Then they find something different in their nets. They catch a very big sunfish.

Sunfish usually go through this area. Fishermen see them often. They never see a sunfish so big. It is 3.2 meters long, it is 2.9 meters wide. It weighs nearly 2,000 kilograms.

Scientists come to look at it. They are very surprised. They only read about sunfish so big in books.

People in Europe do not eat sunfish. They protect them. Scientists release this sunfish back into the sea.

Difficult words: net (a device for catching fish, birds, insects, and other animals), protect (to keep safe), release (to let go).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
