How to land a coelacanth


Question the beliefs of any cryptozoologist and they'll invoke the coelacanth, the very old and very ugly fish that was extinct for thirty million years, until it was pulled out of the sea off South Africa in 1938 (one of the first scientists to attempt to inspect the beastie is reputed to have fainted shortly after laying eyes on it). Now Justinus Lahama, who caught one of the things a couple of months ago, offers some tips for twenty-first century anglers. Crass, I know, but the first question I wanted to ask was: can you put one of them on the barbie, and live to tell the tale?)
