Megamouth Shark # 46: Megamouth Found Stranded Along The Hinunangan Shore In The Philippines

September 5, 2008
Sources of Information:
Ian Joey Tajonera

A megamouth shark was found alive, stranded on the shoreline of Hinunangan in the Philippines on September 5, 2008. Measuring 213 cm in length, this megamouth was pulled back into the water where it presumably swam back into the ocean. No photographs were taken, however it was positively identified by AT-Fisheries as the same species of fish found in this region in 2007 (see Megamouth #40 for more information on that specimen).
