A sea Coelacanth (Porolepiforms) in the network has an Indonesian fisherman (Justinus Lahama). Long believed to be extinct, along with the dinosaurs of the Cretaceous period this Urfischart. According to the present state of science live these exotics on…
360 million years with little change. After consideration of the Fisher to give the fishing of science, this is a valuable asset.
The quaint fish was caught off the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on May 22 near the coast in 100 m depth alive. The Dino-fish weighed 50 kg, and had a body length of 1.30 meters. It took half an hour until you put the fish on board the canoes with linen. He had bright green eyes and legs and looked very ugly, said Lahama. If I would have caught him at night I it probably scared back thrown.
The Coelacanth is the second specimen, caught in Asia was alive. As the fish had survived 17 hours in a basin, important video recordings were made of him. The fish was frozen for more scientific evidence. It’s amazing that the fish in such a shallow depth in the network had gone.Previously, it was assumed that her depth found only in 200 m – 1000 m.
After the end of the scientific investigations of ur fish should be prepared and issued.
