Nguyen Minh Tuan, lecturer at the Quy Nhon University, was bathing 100 meters off Quy Nhon Town at around 6.45 a.m. when a fish bit his left arm two times before swimming away.

A man fishing nearby came to rescue Tuan, who later had to undergo a two-hour surgery at the local Army Medical Hospital No.13.

Tuan said the fish had grey and rough skin, and looked like it weighed 20-30 kilograms.

Mang Duc Hanh, another staff member of the university, meanwhile, was attacked at around 5 p.m. the same day when he was bathing in the same area off Quy Nhon Town.

Hanh was also bitten twice on his right wrist, damaging arteries and nerves. He was transferred to the Ho Chi Minh City-based Cho Ray Hospital from the local Binh Dinh General Hospital on Monday morning due to critical nature of his injuries.

“The fish’s skin was a bit smooth and weighed around 35-40 kilograms. I’m absolutely sure it was a shark,” Hanh told Thanh Nien.

The fish was also reported to attack a local woman, causing minor injuries to her.

Since last July around ten people have fallen victim to the fish at Quy Nhon beach.

Thai Ngoc Bich, chairman of Quy Nhon town’s People’s Committee, said the fish was likely to be a shark, stressing that they would take actions, including offering a reward to those who could catch it.

Around 10 people bathers have been attacked since July 2009. On January 9 alone, three were attacked.

On January, Nguyen Minh Tuan, lecturer at the Quy Nhon University, was bathing 100 meters off Quy Nhon Town at around 6.45 a.m. when something bit his left arm twice before swimming away.

A man fishing nearby came to rescue Tuan, who later had to undergo two-hour surgery at the local Army Medical Hospital No.13.

Tuan said the fish had grey, rough skin, and looked like it weighed 20-30 kilograms.

Mang Duc Hanh, another staff member of the university, meanwhile, was attacked at around 5 p.m. the same day when he was bathing in the same area off Quy Nhon Town.

Hanh was bitten twice on his right wrist, damaging arteries and nerves. He was transferred to the Ho Chi Minh City-based Cho Ray Hospital from the local Binh Dinh General Hospital on Monday morning due to the sever nature of his injuries.

“The fish’s skin was a bit smooth and I think it probably weighed around 35-40 kilograms. I’m absolutely sure it was a shark,” Hanh told Thanh Nien.

The fish was also reported to have attacked a local woman, causing minor injuries to her the same day.

Thai Ngoc Bich, chairman of Quy Nhon City, said the fish was likely to be a shark, stressing that they would take actions, including offering a reward to those who could catch it.

Nguyen Huu Hao, chief of Binh Dinh Provincial Bureau for Aquatic Resources Exploration and Protection, said that the agency has arranged a boat to patrol the beach during peak hours. Hao has also proposed to set up a rescue station on the beach.

Binh Dinh authorities have asked the Nha Trang Oceanography Institute to help verify the species and whether there might be more than one. The institute’s vice director Vo Si Tuan led a group of experts to Quy Nhon on January 12 to be briefed on the situation and visit victims.

Nguyen Quang Huynh, 57, the first victim of the fish on July 18 2009 said that he and four friends swam in the sea in the morning. All of them were good swimmers so they bathed far from the shore. Around 150m from the bank, Huynh was suddenly bitten by a fish to his right leg. A piece of muscle as big as a hand was bitten away, uncovering the bone.

Huynh’s friends brought him to a local hospital. He had to stay in hospital for one month to treat the injury.

Local fishermen said they sometimes caught small sharks of between 5 and 7kg in this area. However, sharks are more likely to swim near the shore between March and August.

Dr. Tuan from the Nha Trang Oceanography Institute said that initially, experts can only confirm that a fish caused the injuries but they have to carry out further research to clarify the species.

Another expert from the institute, Vo Van Quang, said that it is very difficult to identify the fish that attacked people because the most modern equipment can only detect shoals of fish, not individuals.

This is not a typical post about a Shark Attack Related Incident, but following new third world countries reports on previously unknown incidents we are trying to keep a record.

Caught shark not attack sea bathers in Quy Nhon

Experts said that the one-tone shark netted by a Phu Yen province’s fisherman is not the cruel fish that attacked ten people in Quy Nhon.

Phan Trong Ho, director of the Binh Dinh Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, confirmed that, based on its weight, character and the bites, the recently caught shark is not the predator sought by Binh Dinh residents.

Senior fishermen also claimed that a one-tone shark can swallow a man whole, not just his legs.

Dr. Vo Si Tuan, director of the Nha Trang Oceanography Institute, said that the seized shark belongs to the black shark species.

A trader in Phu Yen province bought the shark (without its fins) at the price of 30 million dong and chopped it down to sell.

In mid-January, a number of people were hospitalized with serious injuries. The Nha Trang Institute for Oceanography confirmed that these injuries were caused by a shark, but they couldn’t specify the species.

Quy Nhon authorities have offered a cash prize of 10 million dong to anyone who can catch the shark. This is the first shark netted since that day.
