  Sea-Monster or Shark: An Alleged Plesiosaur Carcass
As mentioned, some scientists believed from the start that the carcass in question was probably a shark, based on their knowledge of basking shark decay, and similar "sea serpent" carcass incidents of the past.
The basking shark, Cetorhinus maximus, is the second largest fish in the sea (surpassed only by the whale shark).
As recounted by renowned cryptozoologist Bernard Heuvelmans (1968), over a dozen supposed "sea serpent" carcasses of years past were later shown to be definite or probable shark carcasses--in most cases basking sharks.

 sea story #6
Widespread American interest in sea serpent sightings is generally believed to have begun in August 1817, when approximately three hundred reputable residents of coastal Massachusetts villages claimed to have seen a dark brown, smooth-skinned creature which moved by means of vertical undulations of its sixty foot long, serpentine body.
The gullibility of the Linnean Society, the inability of curiosity seekers to capture or kill a young specinen of the sea serpent, the monster's reputed ability to repel buuets, and the almost incessant public feuding of naturalists and ichthyologists over the probable identity of the frequently sighted beast quickly disillusioned the man on the street.
