Sharks in Hudson?

What next for Hudson River? Shark invasion?

Boy, from heroic miracles like the US Airways Flight 1549 splash landing, to patriotic holiday events, and even sad, tragic endings – the Hudson River certainly is not boring.

While around these parts, the Hudson isn’t known as a swimming spot, many aquatic events take place (like kayaking in Hoboken, for instance). And Hoboken411 Mary spotted something very interesting while near Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse just to our north in Weehawken, NJ this past weekend.

Could this be a dead Shark she saw? Sure looks like it could be one, but hard to know for sure without seeing the fin. Maybe it’s just a giant Catfish?

Either way, it’s funny how few people sharks actually hurt or kill each year, yet most of civilization is deeply frightened by them. Thanks, Jaws!

Jaws or not, sharks are still scary and menacing looking!

Looks like an Atlantic Sturgeon.

Looks like a Sturgeon to me.

I like your statement, “funny how few people sharks actually hurt or kill each year, yet most of civilization is deeply frightened by them”…. ironic, given that you have “Shark Invasion” along with a picture of a harmless, toothless, bottom-feeding river fish.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
