Japanese fisherman catches oversized fish2015.09.30
A JAPANESE (日本的) fisherman recently caught a special fish. Not only did it look like a wolf, it was also extra big!
On 30 August, the man caught this weird fish off the coast of Hokkaido (北海道). If you do not think it is a real fish but more like a monster from a sci-fi movie, you are not alone! This ugly fish is a wolffish (狼魚). The name is not surprising as its head – which is extremely large compared to its body – looks like a wolf.
One thing that is particularly strange about this wolffish is its length. It is two metres long, when the average length of a normal wolffish is only 1.2m. This made some people speculate that it had become unusually huge because of the nuclear disaster in Japan (日本) in March 2011. The site of the reactor is not too far away from Hokkaido.
But an expert disagreed. He said that nuclear radiation usually makes an animal become smaller, not larger. But the fisherman does not care who is right. He just enjoys fishing!
