These recordings document a special catch: fishermen caught a giant sunfish in the Mediterranean. Even a 1,000-kilo scale could not record the animal’s weight.

Sunfish live at depths of up to 500 meters. They feed on jellyfish, plankton and small fish. It is rare in Europe for them to be caught by fishermen. Because they are considered endangered, the consumption of the animals is prohibited, unlike in Asia.

You will find out how big and heavy this rare fish really is and what the fishermen did with their extraordinary catch here or in the video above.
