CHINA: caught an huge 683 lb Pacific Golaith Grouper

This monster size, 683 pound - 290 kg  Pacific Golaith Grouper was recently caught by fishermen off the coast of the Spratly Islands in the China sea. Probably a world record size fish.

After bringing their catch back to shore, they sold it to a local hotel, which will presumably use the fish for food.

Seems that this particular grouper can grow upt to 1,000 pound, but average catch is only 150 pound. Still, it’s not every day that you see a fish this big. This particula grouper is also believed to be endangered, and this raises the question of whether or not keeping the fish and selling it for food is ethically correct or not.
