Now that's ugly
A fisherman in Alaska caught a 40-pound shortraker fish that experts believe is 200 years old. Heres more info from Eric Pfeiffer of Yahoo! News : The Daily Sitka ...
Was the fish carrying his drivers license or announce he was 200 years old at the press conference?
I thought this thread was going to be about Joan Rivers
Mods please merge with the alien thread, that ain't no fish

Seriously, fuck humans - guy should have thrown it back instead be parades it around like a trophy, what a garbage human being. Let that old cocksucker out in a bear refuge so the bears can kill him and brag about how they killed an old human being. Fuck the human race

Tanfan caught and released him when he was under the size limit.
The fish was likely dead by the time it reached the surface due to change in pressure. Just look how much its eyes are blown up in the picture.
Why throw it back if it is big? Not sure what he did with the body and such but there could be some scientific value to having it and studying it.
Such a bitter little man. If we sent you a hallmark could would you feel better?
I was expecting to read about an animatronic fish legend...
Why are you being such a boner?
I have pulled up lots of rockfish that blew up like that, punctured the swim bladder and released and they went right back down to the bottom, alive and well.
You think the old guy is going to mount it? And then when he's done maybe have it preserved or attached to a wooden plaque so he can hang it in his living room to show to his friends? Ya know, after he's mounted it.
There's an AM Wood's ex joke in there somewhere.
FIRE NARDUZZI- tanfan
That fish had loose gills.
This shows how little you know about anything. Deep sea fish are usually dead when they are reeled in. I guess he could have thrown a dead fish back in the water, but then he would be as stupid as you.
Fuck you for being a dumb fuck. Fuck the ghostula type of people who speak about shit they know nothing about.
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
I agree man. It's almost as bad as those bastards that tear up nature by driving their 4x4's around.

I'd bet Mark Wahlberg $500 that fish smells better than a UM coed.
I deep sea fish all the time and never had a fish dead when brought on board. They can be returned to the water and survive if proper precautions are taken. http://catchandrelease.org/venting.shtml
I HATE it when people catch living things like that. Let's kill a 200 year old living being because you are excited you caught. You POS person. Fuck you.
Edit: Different if it is already dead. If it is not, than I am very pissed about it.

There is research to the contrary.
The article is based on a news report regarding one species of fish. The article says that most of that one species don't survive, but that doesn't mean that all die. Also, it depends on how the fish that were studied were hooked and handled. Its error to translate that study of one species to all species of fish. But, one thing we can take from the article is that the fish are not dead when brought on board. Otherwise there would be no point to trying to release them. And we release fish sometimes, for example, over limit on that species or too small. Hate to think Fish and Game is forcing us to waste fish by releasing ones who are certain to die.
That's pretty awesome.
