Get to know second largest fish

Published: 24/09/2008

A FREE talk telling you all you ever wanted to know about basking sharks, the second largest fish in the world, is one of the highlights of the 2008 Oban and Lorn Environment Week.

The audience will get an insight into the secret life of a fish which is mainly found on the west coast of the UK, and has increased in numbers over recent years. The event is at Glencruitten Church Hall, Oban at 7.30pm on Friday.

Shark expert Colin Speedie will also give the lowdown on the research he has been carrying out for Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) to find basking shark “hotspots” along the west coast of Scotland.
