Subject: 359lb Grouper

i dont think it would have lived anyway after the fight....and no way i would eat a fish that big and old! full of mercury!

Medical student lands 359-lb grouper

The giant hauled in by J.J. Tabor of Thibodaux is 12 ounces above the previous Louisiana state record, a state biologist confirmed.

It's been cut down to fillets. The first fillet weighed 53 pounds, Tabor said. He caught it near an oil rig 70 miles south of Fourchon, in 400 feet of water. He won't give a more specific description.
