Fishing crew let whale shark escape from their net

A video clip of a Chokphapimol fishing boat crew helping a whale shark over four metres long after it was stuck in the net in the sea in Krabi's Ko Lanta district went viral on Friday (August 21).

 

 

 

 

Samart Munbut, the fishing boat's captain, ordered his crew to open the net to release the whale shark. It took around five minutes before the whale shark managed to escape from the fishermen's net.

 

"It was the first whale shark that we helped this year," he said. "Initially, we assumed that it had got lost with its mother while chasing a group of small fish."

 

He said he had saved many whale sharks so far, adding that sometimes he had to cut the fishing net to free them.

Not sure it would have got lost with its mother (as this species don't care for their young) and certainly not chasing a group of small fish.

But it's a nice story and well done to the captain and crew for releasing it, and showing their efforts. 💪🏻🙏🏻🤝🏻
