(The Local, Sweden) Fish factory workers in Sweden got a shock when a salmon was discovered on the assembly line with a clear sign of the cross on its belly, prompting workers to hail what has been dubbed the “Jesus Fish”.

Lars Ludvigsson has worked for decades in the salmon industry, and currently spends his days filleting “tons” of Norwegian salmon on an assembly line in Gothenburg.

But Thursday was no ordinary day for Ludvigsson and his co-workers.

“This guy from Gambia suddenly started shouting that he’d found something special and everyone rushed over to look,” Ludvigsson told The Local.
