I did a bit on this starting with - odds of catching a 500 pound marlin -
which I never found the answer to.
Best I can do is (assume cause the look similar)
1) This is a Blue Marlin
2) Female - adult males seldom exceed 150 kilograms (330 lb), females may
reach far larger sizes well in excess of 1,000 pounds (450 kg).
3) Blow mind stats -
"A Pacific blue weighing 1,805 pounds (819 kg) caught in 1970 .....
(this fish often referred to as 'Choy's Monster') still stands as the
largest marlin caught on rod and reel. This fish was found to have a
yellowfin tuna of over 155 pounds (70 kg) in its belly".
Imagine catching a Marlin and getting a 155 pound Tuna at the same time!
They also eat other Marlin's - "A 72-inch (1,800 mm) white marlin has been
recorded as being found in the stomach of a 448 pounds (203 kg) blue
marlin caught at Walker's Cay in the Bahamas".
I wonder what was in the stomach of the one featured in this post?
