The Ugliest Shark You Ever Saw Caught In Florida Keys

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Yesterday, a shrimp fisherman accidentally caught an 18 ft. goblin shark off the Florida Keys. This is the second goblin shark of record in the Gulf of Mexico.

NOAA biologists are working with the fisherman to collect important information about the shark, a known deep water species. Shortly after capture, the shark was released and swam away. Biologists encourage people to call and report these rare sightings and catches as the information they can collect allows them to know more about a species.
