A very big fish – level 2
Fishermen in the Mediterranean Sea found a huge sunfish in their fishing nets. They were very surprised by how big the fish was, so they called scientists.
The fish was 3.2 meters long, 2.9 meters wide, and it weighed nearly 2,000 kilograms. It was the biggest sunfish people saw in Ceuta, on the north coast of Africa. People see sunfish here very often because the fish travel through this area. Nobody expected to see a sunfish this big.
Sunfish is vulnerable in Europe, and vulnerable means that people must protect it, and they do not eat it. After scientists checked the fish, they released it back into the sea.
Difficult words: huge (very big), protect (to care about something, and keep it safe), release (to set free).
