SAINTE-ANNE-DES-MONTS, Que. — Some fishermen netted a big surprise in the province's Gaspe region Sunday.
They pulled a blue shark into their boat while fishing on the St. Lawrence River in Tourelle. The 1 1/2- m shark got caught in their turbot net.
Experts say the species of shark is quite rare for the St. Lawrence.
The shark was sent to a Exploramer, a museum in Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, for study.
