Thirsty cod swallowed soda can

The Waage Skår Family had planned cod for dinner, but when they gutted the cod, they immediately saw that this fish was one of those who preferred Coca-Cola.

The fish gut contained a Coca-Cola can.

The soda can had kept its bright red color, even though it was a little dented, but besides that, not damaged at all, according to the local paper Marsteinen.

The family had not managed to catch any fish that day, so they checked the net cage they had, however, they saw immediately that there was something not quite right with this fish.

«I thought the fish may have eaten a big crab, but when I slit its gut the Coca-Cola became visible,» said Stig Skår, the father, to the daily Bergens Tidende.

Skår said it is remarkable that the fish managed to eat the entire can.

«The cod is ravenous, but that it was that ravenous, I had no idea,» Skår said to TV 2 Nettavisen. «I have heard of fish eating rock, but not a Cola can. If the fish had been healthy, it would have weighed about 10 kilo.»

The family urge people to not throw garbage into the sea.
