Dr. Aleksandar Joksimovic, an ichthyologist from the Institute of Biology of the Sea from Kotor, said that it is probably a large specimen of the Bucanj - Ocean sunfish (mola mola).

- Many fishermen from Budva and Becici contacted me in the meantime who told me that it is probably a large ocean sunfish, which was spotted these days in this part of the sea. Bucanj is completely harmless fish for humans. Due to its habit to "sunbathe" at the surface of the sea, where the top of its fin can be seen, it often happens that an inexperienced observer thinks it is a shark fin, and then there is unnecessary panic - Dr. Joksimovic said.
