Salmon Shark caught in Russia
Date: 22. August 2011.
Location: ‘Mirror Bay’, Kavalerovsky District, Primorsky Krai, Russia.
Species: Salmon Shark ( Lamna ditropis ), male.
Size: said to be 2.2 metres in length.
The capture of this specimen (by ‘amateur fishermen’) has received much
attention in the Russian press because of the two recent shark attacks in the region.
Several commercial fishing vessels have been ordered to hunt the shark (photo) that
was responsible for the attacks, but they haven’t caught any shark yet.
