First up, can I say that I am amazed at the restraint from everyone who had anything to do with this article.
A fisherman hauls up a 6ft creature in his nets, it has a human-like face and torso and NOT ONCE did they use the m word.
After all the articles I have read that have dramatized anything that came from the waves with the slightest bit of humanness about it and immediately cried ‘mermaid!’ this is a refreshing change.
You will quickly notice that being a human-like fish is not all it is cracked up to be. Not much sitting around on rocks, combing your hair and singing to the sailors. Generally your worst enemy is an oar swung in anger.
What I want to know is where on earth they got a jar of alcohol big enough to fit a 6ft fish into!
