A fisherman netted a Great White Shark while fishing off the coast in the south central province of Binh Dinh early Sunday.

Nguyen Van Hai, 36, said the shark swam into a fishing net he had cast into the ocean some 200 meters from Quy Nhon City.

Hai then called two other fishermen to help him pull the shark ashore.

The three dragged the shark, which weighed around 80 kilograms, ashore at 6 am and immediately attracted huge crowds of fishermen who said the shark may be pregnant given the size of its belly.

Hai did not explain what he would do with the 2-meter-long shark.

Local fishermen said they usually net sharks off the coast of Quy Nhon  between the third and sixth months of the Lunar Calendar.

From 2009-2010, more than 10 shark attacks on swimmers were reported in Quy Nhon.
