Bull sharks take to Louisiana swamp - WAFB Channel 9, Baton Rouge, LA |: "HENDERSON, LA (WAFB) - Bass, catfish, and perch make for a great fish fry down on the bayou, but lately, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has found sharks in inland waters of the Atchafalaya Basin Swamp.
Most people have a preconceived notion that sharks are found in the ocean. While that's certainly true, sharks are also being found among the beautiful cypress trees in the waters of the Atchafalaya. 'Well, I guess this is a swamp, shark that lives in the swamp,' said Mike Walker with Wildlife and Fisheries. 'You could call it a swamp shark.'"
