Shark Found in Lake Guntersville Was Atlantic Sharpnose

(From blog.al.com)- A state fisheries official said this morning that a dead shark found in Lake Guntersville (Alabama) last week was actually an Atlantic sharpnose shark and are more confident that it had been thrown into the lake.

Atlantic sharpnose sharks, which reach a maximum of four feet, aren”t known for going inland, said Nichols, assistant chief of fisheries for the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. “So the fish was definitely planted there by somebody,” he said.
