An angler was left reeling after she landed a mammoth catch – a 64 stone tuna.Donna Pasco, 56, had to battle for more than four hours to pull in the mighty 8ft 9in Pacific bluefin, which was twice the weight of a baby elephant.
The angler and her team of four used a 60lb line and when they finally got it on the scales, the fish weighed 411.6kg – enough to fill 2,572 tins of tuna and make 5,145 sandwiches.Donna, who reeled it in near the Three Kings Islands, off Cape Reinga, New Zealand, said: “It was very stubborn, but I’m stubborn as well.”

Last year a 34 stone – or 222kg – bluefin tuna sold for $1.09million at an auction in Tokyo, Japan

Blue Fin Tuna
Massive: Donna Pasco, 56, had to battle for more than four hours to pull in the mighty 8ft 9in Pacific bluefin
Kilo for kilo, it means that Donna’s gargantuan catch could be worth up to $2.02million – around £1.2million. But because it was not caught on a commercial fishing boat she is not allowed to sell the beast.
