A Japanese fisherman has captured what is considered to be among the biggest wolffish ever stumbled upon.
Hirasaka Hiroshi was doing some fishing in Hokkaido as he carried the prehistoric-looking beast, which is about 6 feet, to the surface area.
The catch was extraordinary in that the wolffish typically measure about half of the size of the fisherman’s catch and scarcely enter into shallow water, opting the depths of the Atlantic and also Pacific.
Increasing water temperatures happen to be postulated by researchers as a contributing factor for why wolffish are going further north. Also, it has been proposed that the size of the fish might be linked to fallout from the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe.
