A monstrous prehistoric-looking wolffish has been caught off the Japanese coast.

Hirasaka Hiroshi reeled in the whopper during a trip to Hokkaido, Japan’s second largest island.

Normally the wolffish is about three feet long, but the monster caught by Mr Hirosihi was about six feet in length.

Wolffish are to be found on the ocean floors of the Atlantic and Pacific. They very rarely emerge from the depths.

The fish was not a thing of beauty, with a huge head and a cavernous mouth.

According to a study in 2008, rising water temperatures have resulted in the wolffish migrating further north.

"It was worth flying to [Hokkaido] twice within three months. This guy is super cool,” the posted on Twitter.

No explanation has been given for the size of the fish which was caught around 400 miles away from Fukushima, the site of a nuclear accident in 2011.



WT ~  400 miles from Fukushima and abnormally twice as large as it should be.  Would not eat.
