Miri fisherman catches 145kg giant grouper


The giant grouper fish caught by a local fisherman.

MIRI: A local fisherman caught a 145-kilogramme (kg) giant grouper at offshore Lutong, this morning.

The fisherman, who only wished to be known as Maiden, hooked up the giant grouper using a fishing hook while he was fishing.

The fish was later toured and tied up at the side of the boat to be brought back onshore. While onshore, it caught a lot of fishermen and customers’s attention who were curious seeing the monster fish.

The extraordinary catch became the talk of the local fishermen that Miri waters are teeming with rich marine life and a good hunting ground for deep sea anglers.

A businessman later bought the fish at a cost of RM6, 500.
