In Astute Observation

There was a report out of Karachi, Pakistan today that some fishermen found a 40-foot whale shark floating unconcious almost a hundred mile off shore. This is very sad.

These large fish are more whale than shark. There feed on plankton and I don’t even think they have teeth. I know a little bit about these sharkls because I have swam with them. Not in the wide open spaces of the ocean but in the crowded confines of the Georgia Aquarium.

You have not lived until you have had a school bus sized fish swim by about five inches above your head. It only reminds you that we may not be the only ones here on earth. We sould learn how to share this place.

They Pakistani fishermen managed to sell the huge shark for $18,750. That’s aproximately four years pay for a Pakistani accountant and over ten years pay for one of tghese fishermen. I hope this does not start an open season on whale sharks.
