A group of fishermen in Yemen decided to open his stomach because of the bad smell coming from the whale corpse they found in the Gulf of Aden. A group of 35 fishermen who detected 127 kilograms of acamber used in the perfume industry in the belly of the whale they cut, earned $ 1.5 million.
A group of fishermen in Yemen were warned by Coast Guard officials of the body of a sperm whale in the Gulf of Aden while they were fishing.
A group of 35 fishermen from the southern city of Aden said they were approaching the whale corpse and had a very strong odor.
Because of the bad smell coming from the whale’s corpse, the fishermen thought, “There is something in this whale,” and wanted to take the body to the beach and look inside.
When the fishermen who dragged the body ashore in a small boat, cut the whale, they found ‘treasure’ in the belly of the body.
Fishermen who found 127 kilograms of acamber, known as solid whale vomit and used to make perfume, in the belly of the sperm whale, sold it for $ 1.5 million.
‘THE SMELL WAS NOT VERY PLEASANT, BUT A LOT OF MONEY’
“As soon as we got close there was a very strong smell and we had a feeling that there was something in this whale,” one of the fishermen told the BBC. It wasn’t very nice, but a lot of money,” he said.
Acamber, called ‘golden vomit’ and ‘floating gold’, has been used for many years to produce a gray or black waxy substance in the intestines of sperm whales, and is used in the perfume industry to enhance the effect of fragrance.
THEY BUY A HOME, THEY ARE PLANNING TO MARRY
Middle East Eye, one of the regional newspapers, wrote that the fishermen in the village of Al-Khaisah shared 1.5 million dollars from the 127 kilograms of akamber they found.
A resident of the village of Al-Khaisah said, “When they sold the Akambers, they helped us with money and helped some families with medicine.”
