Angler catches record 8ft 9in Pacific bluefin in New Zealand
An angler in New Zealand and her team pulled in a mighty 8ft 9in Pacific bluefin, which was twice the weight of a baby elephant.
Donna Pasco, 56, had to battle for more than four hours to pull in the mighty 64 stone tuna, which was twice the weight of a baby elephant, the Mirror reported.
The angler and her team of four used a 60lb line and when they finally got it on the scales, the fish weighed 411.6kg - enough to fill 2,572 tins of tuna and make 5,145 sandwiches.
Pasco reeled it in near the Three Kings Islands, off Cape Reinga, New Zealand.
Last year a 34 stone - or 222kg - bluefin tuna sold for 1.09 million dollars at an auction in Tokyo, Japan.
Which means that Pasco's gargantuan catch could be worth up to 2.02 million dollars.
