$30,000 cash reward offered for evidence of the Loch Ness Monster

Businessman Dave Fishwick announced the scheme during a segment on UK television show 'This Morning'.
There is arguably no cryptozoological creature as widely known as the Loch Ness Monster - a mystery animal described as a long-necked prehistoric reptile that is said to lurk in the depths of Scotland's famous loch.

To date, however, conclusive scientific evidence of its existence has been pretty thin on the ground.

Now in a renewed bid to remedy the situation, Dave Fishwick - a businessman who is also known as 'Bank of Dave' - has offered $30,000 to anyone who can solve the mystery once and for all.

Fishwick was recently spotted at the opening of the new and improved Loch Ness Exhibition Center in Drumnadrochit on the 90th anniversary of the first modern sighting of the monster.
"As we look to open our doors, guests will have the opportunity to learn about the legend, and then get to search the famous Loch themselves, armed with further knowledge," said Juliana Delaney of Continuum.

"We wish everyone luck in their search, we know we will be watching the iconic Loch ourselves."

Of course, if someone did happen to have conclusive evidence of the Loch Ness Monster, it could be argued that they'd be able to sell that information for a lot more than $30,000.

Still, if it renews interest in solving the mystery, it can only be a good thing.

I have always thought the Loch Ness Monster was a very large species of eel, so sign me up for 25K worth of Unagi and Rice.

Proving the existence of the Loch Ness Monster is easy! There is absolutely no doubt at all that people see things in the loch that they themselves cannot identify.    And that, simply, is what the Loch Ness monster is: anything you see in the loch that you yourself cannot at the time identify.  Can I have my £25k please?

Meh.. Only $30,000 for proof? It's 2023 and that might buy you a few happy meals but that's nothing.

Whales are friendly and breathe air. Look how long it took for people to believe in the kraken i mean giant squid.

That's a lot of money for a Scott to part with, lol. I'd want $25 000 000 for evidence of Nessie.

Lets see. One's supposedly an air breather, the other doesn't need to go up for air and lives deep in the ocean. My point is a lake is smaller then the ocean, lakes are easier to explore notably its depths and Loch Ness notably has been all explored. Once again, large creatures like whales can be found in the ocean but we can't with creatures in a lake???

Not to mention that the “legend” of the giant squid had its origins in actual encounters of the animals by the captains and crews of ships over several centuries. Whalers in particular came across them on the surface, but more often the squid would be found inside the stomachs of dead sperm whales when they were dissected on the ships.

Anyone remember Houdini and the Scientific American contest? Proof of psychic phenomenon for 5k (1922). I think that's almost 100k today. Poor Nessie's getting ripped off!

The center will pull in a lot more than 25k with increased traffic from hopefuls streaming in to take their chance. Savvy marketing strategy mate.
