But now Steve Feltham, who is recognised by the Guinness Book of Records for the longest continuous monster hunting vigil of the loch, believes Nessie is no plesiosaur but a giant catfish first introduced by Victorians.Mr Feltham’s “Nessie no more” verdict - which he said had been “a long journey” of realisation - could be devastating to the Loch Ness Monster tourism industry, which is said to be worth around 25 million-a-year to the area.The reason is pretty simple – the majority of visitors are usually in a rush and no one is fond of waiting half a century before the website finally loads its content or fails to load.At the last check on 2016-08-30, website load time was 0.05.However the monster mystery will last forever and will continue to attract people here - monster or not.I certainly don’t regret the last 24 years.”The legend of the Loch Ness Monster has been around since the sixth century, when Irish monk Saint Columba witnessed locals burying a man who had been attacked by a ‘water beast.’Sightings were scarce until the first modern newspaper report of a monster in the Northern Chronicle of 27 August 1930 which told of fishermen in a boat on Loch Ness being “disturbed” by a 18 feet long creature.But Mr Feltham, 52, said he was now convinced that Nessie was a Wels catfish - a giant fearsome fish that can grow as long as 13ft and up to 62 stone.“It is known they were introduced into English lakes by the Victorians for sport.They are very long lived and it is entirely possible they were introduced by Victorians to the loch - which would explain why the main sightings of Nessie really started in the 1930s - just as the animals were reaching maturity,” said Mr Feltham, who gave up his girlfriend and home in Dorset to hunt for Nessie.“There was a viable breeding population but I think the numbers have declined to the extent that there are now just one or two left.
