Is this a new world record for Atlantic halibut?
Multiple sources are reporting that a German angler may have crashed the current world record for Atlantic halibut by more than one hundred pounds.
Marco Liebenow hooked the 500+ pound halibut off the Norwegian coast while on a guided fishing trip. His catch has been submitted to the IGFA for verification. Reports on the weight vary: some claim 513, others report 518.
The current world record for Atlantic halibut was set in 2004 for a 418-pound fish caught off the coast of – wait for it – Norway.
