Studio 814

A fisherman caught a Warsaw grouper weighing a whopping 350 pounds!

It was caught with a hook and line in December in roughly 600 feet of water. Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission estimate the fish is 50-years-old, making it the oldest sample they’ve ever collected for their program.

Warsaw groupers can grow up to eight feet long and can weigh up to nearly 600 pounds. The largest one ever caught in Florida was nearly 440 pounds.
