A video of a whale shark “asking for help” from a group of fishermen in East Malaysia has been melting people’s hearts.

The clip posted on Monday, 2 December, showed the whale shark entangled in rope as it approached the boat.

The incident allegedly took place in Sarawak.

As it swam towards them, one of the men grabbed the rope with a hook and cut it off with a knife.

Grateful to finally be free, the creature swam off, splashing its tail as if thanking the men for their act of kindness.

In the background, the fishermen could be heard saying ‘bye’ to it while exclaiming how happy it looked after being set free.

Since the video went up, several people have praised the men for saving the creature.

Fishermen’s income affected by haze

September 23, 2019 | News | No Comments

TUARAN: About 50 deep-sea fishermen from Kampung Lontuong, Mengkabong and Gayang, here, were affected by the haze when their income dropped drastically after they could not go deep sea fishing due to the phenomenon which blanketed the area since two weeks ago.

The fishermen from the three villages had to resort to fishing nearer to the coast while waiting for the haze to disappear.

A fisherman from Kampung Lontuong, Mohd Darasat Wahid, 54, said however, coastal fishing was not as lucrative as deep-sea fishing, and this made a huge impact on their income.

“However, we dare not venture into the deep-sea as the haze is too thick thus we risk getting lost in the sea due to limited visibility,” he said to Bernama.

Mohd Darasat said as most of the fishing vessels owned by the fishermen here were not equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS), the fishermen would normally depend on the reflection of the highest mountain in the area as a guide during their deep-sea ventures.

“Now, we cannot see the reflection due to the haze, so we have stopped deep-sea fishing until the situation gets better,” he said.
