    Abstract

    A whale shark, Rhincodon typus caught by a trawl boat landed at Kalamukku fish landing centre on 23rd May 2013. This fish was accidently entangled in a trawl net operated off Kochi at a depth of 70 m. The fish did not have external injuries on its body. It was having a total length of 5 m (Fig.1) and other measurements could not be taken as the information received was at a later stage and the specimen was already thrown back to the sea.
