Abstract

On 29-01-2010, a whale shark (Rhincodon typus) was landed at Neendakara Fisheries Harbour in Kollam District, Kerala. The shark was caught in Hooks and Line off Chavara. The specimen landed was a juvenile female shark measuring 4.15 m (TL) and 0.83 m (maximum body depth), weighing around 450 kg. The fish was hurriedly put in a lorry and taken away and hence detailed measurements could not be taken.
