Rare lemon shark caught off Sentosa waters
A week after a 30-kg grouper was fished out of the Pasir Ris fishing pond, a small shark was caught off the harbour of One-Degree-15 Marina Club at Sentosa.
The baby lemon shark, which measured about a metre long, was caught by fishermen on Tuesday evening.
Lemon sharks, which can grow up to 3-metres long, are known for their unique yellow coloration.
A check online showed the lemon shark is found mainly along the subtropical and tropical parts of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of North and South America, and around Pacific islands.
They inhabit mostly tropical waters and stay at moderate depths.
