Great White shark sightings in Russian waters

Employee of Sakhalin’s fishing enterprises has recently noticed a great white shark near shores of the Anivsky bay, reports head of laboratory of marine food fish of Sakhalin science and research institute.

The man saw shark’s fin, when he was sailing along the shore in his boat. The predator was chasing a seal, which finally fell into a net and was eaten by the shark. During its meal the shark made a 3x3 meter hole in the net. Size of the hole and shark’s fin allow suggesting that the predator was a giant fish.

Last month another great white shark has been caught by means of fixed net in the same place. Marine predator was 4 m 70 cm long and weighed nearly a ton.
