Video of a large, Eel shaped object has people speculating that the mystery of Loch Ness Monster really has been solve. For over a century, tourists and Monster hunters have been drawn to northern Scottish lake by tales of the elusive water Monster who has made its home there. The video, which was filmed in the murky waters of River Ness and flows north out famous lake, appears to show a large, skinny object from left to right across camera lens. Trout in the foreground helps give a sense of scale. The footage was published on Twitter by Ness Fishery Board, which monitors and protects fisheries in Ness district. Let's be honest, tweet say, when you see a large, Eel-shaped object passing your camera in River Ness, first thing you think of is the Loch Ness Monster. They released it at the same time as scientists from New Zealand were concluding a year-long project sampling DNA in Loch Ness, which may shine light on what Monster really is. Scientists collected DNA samples from all over 23-mile-long lake to study its biodiversity and concluded that the monster could be an eel. There is probably not giant scaly reptile swimming around Loch Ness, says Neil Gemmell, lead scientist on the project. Similarly, team found no evidence of either cat fish or sturgeon. They do, however, find plenty of Eel DNA. But that theory, too, raises questions. Eels usually only grow to 4 to 6 feet and they migrate to reproduce. Plenty of uncertainty remains, says Gemmell. Historically, sturgeon have been seen in Loch Ness, and seals often make their way into the lake. It could simply be the case that neither of those species were there at the time of the survey. However, as with anything to do with Nessie, as Loch Ness Monster is affectionately know, nothing is straightforward. As much as Twitter users like video-with friendly speculation about what video shows, and even Prof. Gemmell weighing in-the Ness Fishery Board may have been trolling their audience. The footage is of a large 'eel shaped object'-it is actually likely to be a tree branch about three meters in length, Chris Conroy, director of Ness Fisheries Board, told ABC News. Eels are common in the Ness system, but unlikely to reach that size. For Eel, 4 to 5 feet would already be very long, and the object in the video is much longer. If you look at the original post, it was bit tongue in cheek, say Conroy, it was a slow day on camera, and they hadn't seen much wildlife. When you work on Loch Ness you're always thinking of Monster, he add. Conroy couldn't believe how video has travelled around the world, and how seriously people take it. It was very surprising, We just made reference to Loch Ness Monster and it amazing how seriously people take. It

NESSIE-MANIA

While fakes and hoaxes were plentiful, science also played a significant role in the search for Nessie. All way back in 1904, bathymetric survey was conducted which observed that Loch Ness is very prone to mirages due to deep body of water slow reaction to temperature changes. Distortion or elongating of reflection was commonplace, perhaps even turning a three-foot-long water bird into one looking like three or four times its real size. Later, it would be revealed that sonar would have similar problems when it comes to temperature changes. When Loch Ness Monster mania erupted in the mid-1930s, several biologists took their turn surveying Loch in hopes of finding a more plausible explanation. At time, it wasnt thought that gray seals actually live in Loch due to freshwater and extreme cold water temperatures, but several scientists pin Monster sightings on these salmon-following mammals. As it turned out, in 1985, they were proven correct that seals could be found in Loch Ness in summer months due to pursuit of their prey. In the 1960s, telephoto lens cameras with 16-And 35-millimeter film became the main means in which to study lock. The 1960 film captures something originally thought to be unidentifiable, but recent analysis with image sharpening revealed that it was probably a blurry boat. In the summer of that year, joint Cambridge and Oxford expedition set up cameras to keep a large portion of Loch under constant observation. All of their 19 sightings were boat wakes or long-necked birds searching for fish. 1961 BYU study use cameras and echo sounding equipment. They, too, found no large unknown animals. Throughout the next decade, scientific expeditions keep doing surface-base investigations of Loch Ness but keep coming back with very little evidence of large lifeform inhabiting Loch. In 1973, Adrian Shine got involved in scientific study of both nearby Loch Morar and Loch Ness. Using underwater photography and cameras, they search beds for any signs of large animals. While they didnt find Nessie, they did find previously unknown invertebrates like worms, slugs, and eels living in the dark, cold depths of Scottish waters. Sonar became an important part of search in the 1980s with Operation Deepscan, utilizing Lowrance echo sounders to create a sonar curtain around Loch. They mostly get false positives, interference, and possible seal. In the 1990s, three-year study of the Loch Ness food chain revealed that lochs food sources probably couldnt support any sort of population of massive, omnivorous animals. Then, in 1994, Shine led the Rosetta Project with the intention of drilling sediment cores to document the environmental history of Loch. Loch's approximate age was already known to be 10 000-12 000 years old, but the remaining question was whether the sea had entered Loch at the end of the Ice Age.


What IS the Loch Ness Monster?

Rumours of strange creatures living in waters OF LOCH NESS have abounded over decades, yet scant evidence has been found to back up these claims. One OF the first sightings, believed to have fuelled modern Nessie fever, came on May 2 1933. On this date, Inverness Courier carried story local couple who claimed to have seen 'an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface. ' Another famous claim sightings IS photograph taken in 1934 by Colonel Robert Kenneth Wilson. It was later exposed as a hoax by one OF participants, Chris Spurling, who, on his deathbed, revealed that the pictures were stag. Other sightings James Gray's picture from 2001 when he and friend Peter Levings were out fishing on LOCH, while namesake Hugh Gray's blur photo of what appeared to be a large sea creature was published in the Daily Express in 1933. The first reported sighting OF MONSTER IS said to have been made in 565AD by Irish missionary Columba when he came across the giant beast in River Ness. BUT no one has ever come up with a satisfactory explanation for the sightings-although earlier this year 'Nessie expert' Steve Feltham, who has spent 24 years watching LOCH, said he thought it was actually giant Wels Catfish, native to waters near the Baltic and Caspian seas in Europe. The online register lists more than 1 000 total Nessie sightings, created by Mr Campbell, man behind Official LOCH NESS MONSTER Fan Club and is available at www. Lochnesssightings. Com. Many Nessie witnesses have mentioned large, crocodile-like scutes sitting atop the spine of the creature, leading some to believe escaped amphibians may be to blame. Native fish sturgeons can also weigh several hundred pounds and have ridge backs, which make them look almost reptilian. Some believe Nessie IS a long-neck plesiosaur-like elasmosaur-that survived somehow when all other dinosaurs were wiped out. Others say sightings are down to Scottish pines dying and flopping into LOCH, before quickly becoming water-log and sinking. While submerge, botanical chemicals start trapping tiny bubbles of air. Eventually, enough of these are gather to propel the log upward as deep pressures begin altering its shape, giving the appearance of an animal coming up for air.
