JIANGSU PROVINCE, China -- A giant 'blue' [basking?] shark was captured by a fisher in east China's Jiangsu Province on the afternoon of May 23. The shark was 10 meters long and 1.5 meters wide with a total weight of five tons or so.
The shark was so large, a special crane had to be used to maneuver the beast.
A businessman passing by purchased it at the price of over 100,000 yuan right after the capture.
