The fishermen went out for net fishing and throwing small shrimps in the sea to feed the fish. It is the best way to catch net the fish but when they throw the shrimp into the sea, the “Butanting” Local    name of the whale shark appeared in the surface and they are shock  because it is super big and they thought it will kill them. The fisher man departed from the net fishing area but the Whale shark” keep following them. Finally,they went back home to ther own town and tell the story to the dive shop center.
