That article is dated back in 2016. Much of the information is and was well known.

THE SURGEON’S PHOTO
When people think of the Loch Ness Monster there is one photo that is iconic. That grainy image is known as “The Surgeon’s Photo” because it was supposedly snapped by surgeon Robert Wilson in 1934. For the next 60 years it was the classic monster photo used everywhere. However, in 1994 a man by the name of Christian Spurling made a deathbed confession. He had made the model used to fake the photo. Things got even more interesting. Spurling’s stepfather was the disgraced Marmaduke Weatherall who had concocted the whole plan to exact revenge for his earlier umbrella stand hoax. Robert Wilson was the front man because the fraudsters believed a surgeon would be taken seriously. It almost worked!

It's 2020, why not Nessie too???
Glad someone finally got it on sonar.
Sure there've been hoaxes, but that doesn't discount all the other witness reports. Nature's critters are tough an usually find a way to adapt and survive.
Whether it's a type of Eel or holdover from the age of dinosaurs is the big question. That somethings there wasn't ever all that debatable.
I thought it was accepted that Nessie is a plesiosaur. And i guess it goes without saying but the idea that there’s only one in the loch means that it’s at least 5 hundred years old and still alive with nothing to mate with....highly unlikely.

I have uploaded the sonar images to ATS but for some reason image library isnt working , but im trying to get them side by side , but you can clearly see the new sonar image is clearly off the deck and a different shape
Loch Ness is so large that the summer's warmth does not entirely leave it until well into the next spring, in the meantime melting the snow along its shores. For the same reason however, the loch takes a long time to heat and no summer warms more than the upper ten metres to more than about 15oC and only the top few centimetres to 20oC. The loch is relatively cold from a biological point of view and many of its inhabitants are "relicts" from glacial times.
