As I have said in the past, I am reasonably convinced that most sightings can be identified as sturgeon. This leaves rather few absolute descriptions of the alleged beast [close encounters] by which to judge; in addition to a lack of any supporting scientific evidence. I remain just slightly open to but mostly dubious of this claim. My only hold out is that any underwater beast might hide whenever dozens of large boats simultaneously cross the lake in concert. So, I think that it is just slightly possible that the spirit of Heisenberg may haunt this effort to find the thing. Also, perhaps such a animal could detect [hear] sonar. This may also thwart the effort.
The Loch Ness monster is one of the most enduring mysteries of the modern age. Certainly nothing else in contemporary zoology engenders quite the amount of controversy as does the question of whether or not there is a giant undiscovered creature lurking in the depths of Scotland’s largest lake.
