A British fishing party has caught a record number of a rarely seen species of shark that pre-date dinosaurs.<br />
<br />
The group reeled in 14 monster sixgill sharks in one day in a secret area of the north Atlantic dubbed Jurassic Park because it is inhabited by the pre-historic fish.<br />
<br />
The sharks weighed up to 450lbs (32st) each and it took an average of 40 minutes to reel in each one.<br />
<br />
The sixgill shark - Hexanchus griseus in Latin - spends much of its time in deep water and as a result has little interaction with humans, with only one reported attack in 500 years.
