This is what I found on CNN.com:

The most famous photo of the Loch Ness monster has long been discredited as a hoax, but scientists have come up with a new explanation for other sightings of the elusive beast — it could be just a giant eel.

A team of researchers used DNA samples from taken from the lake in Scotland where “Nessie” is believed to dwell and concluded that a more familiar creature was behind the legend.

“There are large amounts of eel DNA in Loch Ness,” Neil Gemmell, a geneticist from New Zealand’s University of Otago said on Thursday.

Scientists began the study of the lake’s biodiversity in June 2018, taking 250 samples of water from various locations and depths to identify its inhabitants.
