A fish weighing 434 pounds and thought to be 150 years old (that's right, 150), was caught recently by a group of British fish merchants..

The anglers from Hull, England, reeled in the enormous Halibut and estimate from its size that it was born sometime in the 1860s. They know this because Halibut grow about 2.2 pounds every year, and this one weighs 373 pounds without its head.

Dean Roberts, co-owner of Norstar, the company that reeled in the Halibut, says he is hoping to get around $2,400 for his prize fish.
