That's A Big Fish, Dave

German man catches 500lb+ Atlantic Halibut, Aug. 2013.
(Over 8 ft. in length.)

Having spent a significant amount of time swimming in the South Pacific and South China Sea--solo--photos like this scare the crap outta me.

Yeah, I said it, "They scare the C-R-A-P out of ME!"

How is it even possible for a halibut to get 8 ft. in length?  

(I'm pretty sure the last time I had halibut it fit on an 8 inch plate.)

What the what is going on in the waters near Norway?


Random Sidenote: On S23 Ozzy caught us a halibut and it was one of the best fish I ever ate. Oh man.
