100-year-old rockfish caught off Alaskan shore (w/pic)
Check this out, a 100 year old rockfish was caught off Alaska, it’s mammoth fish. Anyway, “the 44-inch, 60-pound female shortraker rockfish was caught last month by the catcher-processor Kodiak Enterprise as it trawled for pollock 2,100 feet below the surface, south of the Pribilof Islands in the Bering Sea.”
Scientist measure the rings in fish ears like tree rings to determine age, the maximum suggested age of this species is 150 years old!
Oh yeah, rockfish are good eating.
