Here are five records of the biggest fish ever caught to remind you of the giants that lurk in our seas!
Koalas are usually silent creatures, but they do communicate through a range of vocalizations.
In 1953, Alfred Glassell, Jr. made history by catching a 1,560-pound black marlin off Cabo Blanco, Peru.
Alfred Dean’s 1959 catch of a 2,664-pound great white shark in Australian waters stands as a monumental record.
As impressive as this is, this record should never be broken as Great White Sharks no feature on IUCN’s list of vulnerable species.
In 1979, Ken Fraser caught a giant bluefin tuna weighing 1,496 pounds off Nova Scotia.
Sara Hayward set an almost unbreakable record in 2005 by catching a 184-pound wahoo off Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Joey Pallotta’s 1983 catch of a 468-pound white sturgeon in California is a record that still stands.
As always, when pursuing record-breaking catches, it’s crucial to practice responsible fishing!
