An Omani fisherman, Nasser Bin Zayed Al Qatiti, found three whale sharks in his net in Khaboura.

The young man shared a photo with the shark that he accidentally caught, and it went viral.

Many people were amazed at the size of the shark and the fact that it was found in Oman

"On Saturday, at 6:00 am, I found three sharks — that we called 'Al Kar' locally — in my net. One was dead but the other two were alive. I freed the two live ones back to the sea. We do not fish for this type of shark because it is not for sale, so when they get caught in our nets we release them." - Nasser Bin Zayed Al Qatiti
