Internet ByCatch | World’s Biggest Cod?

The 5ft-long specimen was hauled in by Michael Eisele, 44, in the waters off Norway last month.

If confirmed by the International Game Fishing Association, it will smash the previous world record of 98lbs 12oz for an Atlantic cod caught off New Hampshire in the United States in 1969.

Historical records claim that cod of 200lbs were once found in the seas, but these days a 10-year-old fish caught in the North Sea weighs between 24lbs and 33lbs on average.
