Scientists want to use DNA testing to finally solve the Loch Ness monster mystery!

We may need to take DNA to stand for Did Not Appear as Scientists will soon be testing the waters of Loch Ness in coming weeks in a quote to solve the mystery of what lies beneath the surface.

According to the Mirror newspaper, specialists from all over the world will form the Super Natural History team, performing DNA sampling of the waters.

The research study is being led by Teacher Neil Gemmell, who stated: “Large fish like catfish and sturgeons have actually been suggested as possible descriptions for the beast misconception and we can quite test that idea and others.

“While the possibility of searching for evidence of the Loch Ness monster is the hook to this job, there is an amazing amount of brand-new understanding that we will acquire from the work about organisms that live in Loch Ness – the UK’s biggest freshwater body.”

Professor Eric Verspoor is part of the worldwide team examining the loch and the researchers will be testing the water to discover exactly what the mysterious creature is (or isn’t). Prof Gemmell, of the University of Otago, New Zealand, said he would be amazed if there’s any proof of DNA from a big extinct reptile. Teacher Gemmell has put together a team of global science leaders from the UK, Denmark, US, Australia and France, along with Adrian Shine of the Loch Ness Task. The team is performing its examination at the loch this month.

Chris Taylor, VisitScotland local leaderships director, stated: “The mystery and the intrigue of the Loch Ness beast attracts visitors from all over the world to the stunning area every year.

“It is exciting to invite Teacher Gemmell and his group to the loch and we will be excitedly expecting their findings.

Chris Taylor, Adrian Shine (back), Teacher Neil J Gemmell and Christina Lynggaard (front) are intending to resolve the secret.

“While the research study might offer an insight into one of the world’s most popular enigmas, it will certainly use a closer take a look at all of the various animals residing in the loch.”

Uncommon items previously discovered in the loch include a 30ft long Sea serpent design discovered on the loch bed in 2016 throughout a sonar search by Kongsberg Maritime and supported by The Loch Ness Task and VisitScotland.

The model was a prop from the 1970 film The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, directed by Billy Wilder and starring Robert Stephens and Christopher Lee. It is thought the design sank after its buoyant bulges were eliminated.

Have you visited Loch Ness before? Have you seen Nessie? If the answer is no to both of these then we highly recommend visiting the area. One thing you will definitely see when you are there is the amazing landscape blended in with the Loch – and lots of places selling you Loch Ness souvenirs like a Loch Ness fluffy toy.
