CANADA: 1000 pound bluefin tuna

According to the last fishing news of Daily Mail Angler Marc Towers, fought an huge tuna for two hours before he pulled it to the surface of the water off the coast of Canso in Nova Scotia, Canada.

This monster bluefin tuna was over the 1,000 pound mark (453 kilo). The bluefin tuna was so huge that the crew was unable to haul it onto the boat and had to tie a rope around it to drag it four miles back to the dock. The big tuna was caught during the commercial season, and the boat owners are planning on selling the tuna to Japan for about 20,000 dollars.

The world record for a Bluefin tuna is held by Ken Fraser who caught a 1,496 pound - 677 kilo specimen off the coast of Nova Scotia back in 1979.
