Peter Dent, a trawler fisherman, was socked when the fish turned up in his nets. According to the UK newspaper the Mirror “I’ve certainly never caught anything like this before. I was just doing my normal drift-netting when I noticed this huge fish,” said Dent.
“I didn’t know what it was and at first thought it must have been a shark. When I brought it in, I realised what it was. I was absolutely amazed.” Peter added: “These waters are changing and you can get a few surprises these days.”
The swordfish was caught off the coast near Newbiggin-by-the-sea, Northumberland, and has now been sold to the Black Pearl pub in Newbiggin where it is suspected to supply customers with swordfish steaks for the next few weeks.
