A fisherman transported a dead whale shark to market after it was inadvertently caught in his net, in China’s Fujian province on Friday. According to local media, the fish was more than 16-feet-long and weighed more than two tons.

The whale shark is the world's largest living fish and can reach up to 41.5 feet in length.
