Two days ago, a friggin’ huge shark was captured off the coast of Ibaraki Prefecture. Fisherman attempted to bring the huge fish to an aquarium, but it did not survive the process. At the time, the news media was unsure of exactly what type of shark it was, but it has since been identified as a basking shark. The shark was 9-meters long and weighed over 4.5 tons, making it the largest shark of its kind captured in Japanese waters.
