GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza fishermen say that they caught large numbers of rare batfish off the Gaza shore on Sunday morning.
Speaker of the Gaza association of fishing and sea sports Mahfouth al-Kabariti told Ma'an that the batfish arrived in flocks of hundreds, and he said that they weigh between 50-250 kilograms (110-550 pounds).
Until last year, the fish had not been seen off Gaza's shores since 2008.
