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
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.
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'.
