Fishermen in the Pakistani port of Karachi caught the world’s biggest shark – ever!

They reeled in  one of the biggest fish in the sea: a whale shark.

The Express Tribune, a Pakistani newspaper, reported that the 40-foot fish was first spotted ten days ago in seas about 93 miles from the city. Mehmood Khan, the owner of a local fishery, said the shark was unconscious at that time and other reports said that it was found dead Tuesday.

A large crowd gathered as a succession of cranes were brought in to lift the shark on to the pier. After several hours and a number of failed attempts, the leviathan was finally brought ashore and promptly sold for $18,750.

The whale shark was added to the World Conservation Union’s list of threatened species in 2008.
