A Japanese fisherman has reeled in a HUGE wolffish – and it has raised concerns about the effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. The giant specimen was caught by Hiroshi Hirasaka off the island of Hokkaido, close to eastern Russia, and is one of the largest wolffish ever discovered.

The species usual only grow to around 112 cm and weigh 15kg – but the one found lurking beneath the Pacific Ocean was a staggering two metres long. That is around TWICE the usual size – and its gaping mouth is large enough to fit a small child inside. Fortunately these fish only eat crabs and molluscs but the sight of one of these in the water is enough to terrify any swimmer.
