Huge marlin washes up in WA

A MASSIVE 4.4m blue marlin has been discovered after being washed ashore at Little Beach, east of Albany, earlier this week.

According to WA's Albany Advertiser, it is believed the blue marlin may be the largest ever recorded in Australia.

The female fish, which measures 3.68m from lower jaw to tail, is expected to crack the fisherman's legendary 1000-pound mark — or 454kg.

Fisheries regional manager Kevin Donohue said blue marlin very rarely wash up in the Albany region as the area was the southern extremity of the fish's distribution.
