A gigantic filter-feeding fish found in temperate oceans.

The Basking shark is one of many shark species implemented in Dwarf Fortress. In real life as in DF is the second largest living shark, after the whale shark. They are gigantic (about 15 tons) and produce vast amounts of food when butchered. Like many other aquatic animals they don't produce bones.
