Giant Fishes From The Recent Past

Fish continue to grow throughout their lives, so extremely large fish of any given species can be assumed to be quite old.  Really large fish once were common.  But few fish now reach noteable size due to overfishing.  Beel has compiled a page of photographs in in memorium to those giants of yore.  Let Beel present these to you on Pinterest

Alligator Gar. Moon Lake, Mississippi. March 1910. This fish was about ten feet long.
