The fish has a name? Someone`s pet?
There are some identifiable named fish off Sydney, which interact with divers.I think they are in a sanctuary area, catching them is not on.

No the fish is not someone's pet but a local legend, click here for the story.

Thought it might be like that. The 80 yo.old fish looks a little miffed with the experience, glad it survived.
Flywright, stay where you are!

That would be a wild experience! A 2 hour fight would take me a couple of weeks to recover from. My personal best was only 7 1/2 ft. That girl fought for close to an hour but that was years ago.

"He guesses the fish weighs 650 pounds and measured him at 10 feet and two inches long with a five-and-a-half-foot girth."

Hey, I thought you guys were metric.

10 feet is metric, at least the 10 part.

Probably knowing the story would be viewed in the US decided to translate for you to save confusion, knowing others round the world would work it out...

Look what that fish has to go through for human entertainment!

Frequently I'm not proud to be a human.
