Four fishermen from the city of Jableh in Syria managed to catch a fish that they call the "giant moon fish," or the "lunar fish," a type of fish that lives in the oceans and deep seas.

The fisherman Muhammad Zamzam said, "When we went out to fish at dawn today, my brother Ahmed and Omar, and fisherman Abdullah Saad, sailed the boat in pursuit of our livelihood. We go after migratory fish such as sardines, according to the local media.

Zamzam added, "About an hour later, we felt a tremor in the boat as if it had hit a rock. It turned out that the moon fish had hit the boat, after it entered the net and was chasing small fish."

He continued, "The fish tried a lot to escape from the net and collided again with the boat several times. We held our breath, as if it was a crazy adventure… we are in the middle of the sea in a finger-biting battle between us and the giant fish that weighs more than 1,000 kilogrammes."
