“Mermaids: The Body Found” increases speculation on existence of mermaids

By Amanda Shore

Paul Robertson, a former employee of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), speaks in a two-hour Animal Planet special about his experiences with his research team while they were investigating mass whale beachings around the world. This television program, “Mermaids: The Body Found,” took about five years to complete and gives compelling evidence that suggests that mermaids could be real.

In this program, a sound clip that has been called “the bloop” is played as the first piece of evidence that there is an unknown or new species in the water. Robertson and his team were investigating the mass whale beachings in 2007. When they examined the tissue samples that they took from the whales, they discovered evidence of a SONAR weapon. They believed that this weapon caused the whales to become disoriented. The whales tried to escape the blasts of sound and ended up in waters that were too shallow to support their massive sizes, so they ended up beached.

To try and prove this theory, they pulled up one of their buoys that was recording SONAR activity. It was in this recording that the bloop was discovered. They recognized the sound of another animal mixed in with the sounds of the whales and dolphins. After more closely inspecting it, they discovered that the unknown creature was communicating with them, possibly warning each other to get away.

Later on, there was another mass beaching in South Africa. The researchers in South Africa had recorded similar sounds on their own devices. Robertson and his team traveled there to investigate. There, they were shown the remains of an unknown creature that had been found inside a great white shark. After carefully studying this creature’s remains, these scientists became convinced that it was a mermaid.

Unfortunately, the government confiscated the remains and their research as the team was about to return to the United States. The only thing that they had left was the bloop. Robertson tracked down one of two boys that had reportedly seen a mermaid body on the beach the morning of the first mass whale beaching. He says that he captured the mermaid on his camera phone. Robertson viewed this video as well as a drawing that the boy did after the event. The drawing matched what his team had found.

In addition to all of the scientific evidence that they found, they also looked to history for some evidence. There have been reports of strange spears and daggers found in sea creatures that fishermen have been finding for years. Robertson had found one of these tools in the great white shark. 16th-century drawings show very close matches to what Robertson and his team found. Ancient cave paintings show struggles between humans and mermaids.

Robertson stated in the program that he believes that mermaids do exist but that, unlike one of his colleagues who thinks that the only solution is to find them, he doesn’t want to find the mermaids anymore. He stated that he thinks the mermaids have survived this long because they know how to hide. He talked about how he doesn’t think that humans would be able to coexist with the mermaids without wiping them out. He is still trying to get the testing and development of the SONAR weapon to stop in order to save whales, dolphins and mermaids.

Whether they are mermaids or not, there are definitely mysterious and unknown species in the oceans. Watch “Mermaids: The Body Found” to decide for yourself.

    Survivors of an ancient aquatic civilization. Descendants of Triton and Poseidon have lost their tridents and have to rely on small fishing arrows for weapons! They cannot even raise an electric spark let alone a thunder bolt!

    Anything is possible! Only thing that look suspicious is how are they make weapons (knifes) for hunting since they dont have chance to make them in the wather.Also if they are existing since 7 million years ago how they learnt to built thosr knifes…other than that it is very possible they are here in Oceans and Seas around the world.

      Valid doubt about a permanently submarine culture that manufactures tools (hunting spears) for fishing =D Do they have gills for breathing? If not how do they manage to stay away from the surface of the sea and being sighted? Are the localized in the mid-Pacific waters? (Or, are they anaerobes or are they chemosynthesizers?) They would have to surface regularly for air, like whales and dolphins. Besides, our technology now should be able to put this matter beyond doubt. (Why should the government insist on secrecy on such species? Perhaps to protect them from extinction by inquisitive irresponsible trophy hunters?) Bizzare, fantastic, fabulous “ancient alien” stories. Mermaids. USOs (Unidentified Swimming Objects 😉

    Confiscation….hiding things…sure signs that there is something they are hiding. I’d like to believe they exist. So fascinating!

    I don’t say they doesn’t exist because, if they have found bones and other physical and/or great evidences, then it’s certain there’s a new animal species… unless if it’s just another version of the Montauk monster.
    Moreover, when a government confiscates any finding without any apparent good reason, it’s because they are hiding something.

    However, after seing the show, it is clear that most of the video recordings seen on it and said to be “proofs” of the mermaids existance (not the ones that are computer animated), are fake, specially the one of the two boys who found it on the beach: It has all traits of a Screamer (a video intended to scare the person watching it when he/she less expects it), not to mention the differences in contrast of the creature’s body and the surroundings.

    As for the bloop effect, it was also revealed to be just an icequake, although like almost anything in science, there is still a remote chance of it really being that said animal.
