Abstract

On the 27th February 1963 a juvenile whale shark Rhincodon typus Smith was caught in a boat seine ' Paithu vala' operating in 12 fathom water off Cannanore coast. This shark, noted for its timidity and gentleness, did not make any attempt to struggle free from its captors and died soon, probably due to exhaustion or shock. It was towed to Thayyil landing centre where we had occasion to examine it.
