Four-metre fish of unknown species discovered on Almería beach

A FOUR-METRE-LONG fish of an unidentified breed has been found on the shores of the Almanzora caves near the Luis Siret beach in Villaricos (Almería).

Bathers in the area took photographs of the remains of the sea-creature and contacted the Civil Protection squad, who in turn notified the marine fauna protection society, PROMAR, in nearby Pulpí.

Experts at the centre say they have never come across any species like it and are attempting to find out from its remains what it could be.

The woman who found it firstly discovered the head, and then the body farther down the beach, which is said to be over four metres in length.

Various laboratories belonging to PROMAR and similar centres have taken parts of the remains and photographs to analyse, but the 'perishable' parts of the fish have been buried 'for hygiene reasons'.
