On June 21, a man, from Seattle, Washington, caught a fish off the coast of Alaska. The fish may be around the age of two-hundred-years-old.
According to Yahoo, Henry Liebman, who is a real estate developer, caught the fish, a shortracker rockfish, about 10 miles off the coast of Sitka, Alaska coast.
Experts have say that the fish's size indicates that the fish may even be older than 200-years-old.
According to ScientificAmerican, samples of the fish have been sent to Juneau, where a lab is located. The actual age of the fish will be determined there.
According to DailyMail, the fish that Liebman caught was 41 inches long, and the average life expectancy of the breed of fish is around 175 years.
The fish that Liebman caught is not the largest fish that has ever been caught in the ocean. Sport fisherman Ken Fraser caught a bluefin tuna that weighed 1,496 pounds
