The big fish caused a sensation among netizens due to a special image on it.
Photos of a large fish caught in the southern Philippines have become the center of controversy on social media, as there are meticulous tattoos everywhere that make people compete with each other for explanations.
The close-up of the fish with a unique “tattoo” all over its body caused a stir in public opinion.
The fish was caught by fishermen living in Lopez Jaena province, Misamis Occidental and they immediately discovered that its skin was covered with detailed artistic patterns, including a pictogram. the crown sits above a shield, with some beautifully interwoven letters and leaves.
This drawing also caught the attention of passers-by around this time, some of whom quickly took pictures of the fish and posted it on the Internet.
Very quickly, the major news sites took notice of this story and it eventually became the hot topic of discussion.
Several people took the above photos and they were transmitted at breakneck speed.
This strange “tattoo” is clearly the product of the human hand, but how it appeared on the wild fish is unknown. Thousands of people have commented on the photos posted by the GMA News website.
One of the most sensible comments on the big fish “tattoo” belongs to a surfer named Steve Clark. He wrote: “It was probably caused by a piece of rubbish or a piece of cloth that wound up on the skin of the fish and after a while the design was imprinted on its skin. I think so”.
However, there are also opinions that the fish is the embodiment of a certain god, or claims to be a sign of Revelation. Others believe the fish may have escaped from a fish farm where oceanologists marked the fish there with this strange symbol.
It took a few days after this story spread everywhere people got a satisfactory response. Zosimo Tano, a 41-year-old fisherman who caught the fish, explained the truth behind the “tattooed fish” news told by other fishermen after watching it on TV.
This shirt is the reason why the big fish suddenly got “tattoos” on him.
It turns out the 24kg blue marlin he caught doesn’t have a tattoo. The photo on it was due to the shirt he used to wrap around the fish at that time.
“He doesn’t have tattoos. I couldn’t expect the pattern printed on the shirt I was using to wrap the fish on its skin, ”Zosimo told ABS-CBN News.
