200-year-old Rockfish Might Be Oldest Fish Ever Caught

And the silly human should be so proud that he killed a living piece of history. Bravo human.

yeah its definitely sad, but he wouldn't have been able to throw it back anyways

(However once the rockfish was secured, throwing it back wasn't a good option, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

"Rockfish caught in deep water often sustain injuries," as a result of the decompression that happens when fish are quickly elevated to the surface, the ADFG says on its website. With Liebman being at a depth of 900 feet, "because of high release mortality, intentional catch-and-release fishing is greatly discouraged, particularly in depths of 60 feet or greater.")
