Sawfish and sharks make for delicious
eating, but Thomas Thorson had
something else in mind during his latest
fishinn expedition to Lake Nicaragua in
Thorson, a UNL professor of zoology,
was in Nicaragua for three weeks to help
film the bull sharks and sawfish in the
lake for an upcoming Jacques Cousteau
Cousteau, renowned oceanographer ,
has produced several TV specials
concerning the undersea world in recent
years. . , , :
Sharks were once thought to be
land-locked, fresh water fish. Thorson
said his research has proved this is not
After tagging over 3,000 bull sharks
in Lake Nicaragua and In the Atlantic
Ocean, Thorson concluded that the
sharks travel 100 miles upstream from
the ocean to the 40,000 square mile lake.
Tagged on shore
During Thorson's trip to- Lake Nicar
agua, six days were spent filming and
tagging bull sharks near San Carlos,

filmed during this expedition.
The waters of Lake Nicaragua are
turbid and overgrown with vegetation,
which added to the crew's filming
problems, Thorson said.
"You can't see a foot in front of your
face," he said. "But we got enough
Thorson will be traveling to Los
Angeles in December to work on the
script for the television special.
The rest of the crew went to the coast
to continue filming, while Thorson
returned to Lincoln.
The water may be clearer in the
lagoons along the Atlantic Coast and
provide better filming conditions,
