'Largest-ever' swordfish caught in Qingdao

Fishermen in Qingdao, East China's Shandong province netted two large swordfish and were selling them at a local market on Saturday, Qingdaonews.com reported.

The larger fish, measuring 4.1 meters long and weighing 310kg, was reportedly the largest ever caught by Qingdao fishermen in the Yellow Sea. The other one was a little over 200kg.

A local fisherman said the giant fish most probably swam into the net while chasing smaller fish.

Local fishmonger Shi Donglei, who bought the larger fish for about 19,000 yuan ($2,981 dollars), or around 60 yuan per kg, said he will cut it into pieces and sell it on the market for 100 yuan per kilogram "so that more Qingdao residents can have a taste of it", according to the report.
