MOROCCAN SARDINE FISHERMEN NET BLUE whale
 
 
   Rabat, Oct 5 Reuter - Moroccan fishermen trawling for sardines in
the Atlantic netted instead a 12-tonne blue WHALE, the Moroccan news
agency MAP said on Thursday.
   At 13m long the WHALE dwarfed the 11m trawler, which was off the
Western Saharan port of Tarfaya.
   MAP quoted the captain as saying the WHALE failed to free itself
from the net despite a struggle of more than 12 hours. It was not
immediately known if the WHALE survived. MAP quoted a marine
scientist as saying blue whales were rarely seen in Moroccan waters.
