We're gonna need a bigger boat

POULSBO — A 6-gill shark measuring 9 feet was found along Liberty Bay Tuesday by Poulsbo resident Andy Woodford. Woodford was combing the beach for shells when he found the body of the shark. It appears to have washed up on shore near the area behind the Asgard Apartments. A Seattle Aquarium employee was headed out Wednesday morning to take samples of the carcass and determine which type of shark it is. The Department of Fish and Wildlife said the agency is currently conducting an aging study of 6-gill sharks. Liver and tissue samples will be taken.
