Leviathan by Ranarh Leviathan by Ranarh
I would have named it "fish and ships", but the only fish big enough to be seen would be whales, and they're not fish. Sigh. Always something.
Speaking of mix-ups, this is the infamous leviathan, leviathanus bengalensis poloii, the kind that lives off the east coast of India. The so-called "leviathan" in the Red Sea that inspired ancient peoples to creatures like Skylla, the monster Odysseus met, is a different species altogether.

Build dreadnaught ships to guard trading routes? Employ orbital defense stations? Poison the waters? Most likely, the fishing industry will complain until we create seamonsters of our own, give them the unsuspicious code name "Scylla", let them loose on the things, and be surprised when they start multiplying uncontrollably, eating more ships than the original leviathans.
Thanks!
