When the MAER team arrived, they discovered the 18-20 foot basking shark with rope through its mouth and around both flippers.  It was swimming slowly as it dragged the fishing gear along the ocean floor.

The team was eventually successful in removing the ropes and freeing the shark, which appeared to be in “relatively good condition”.
