Largest Black Marlins

On the photo Alfred Glassell poses with his long standing world record Black Marlin (Makaira indica) weighing 1,560 pounds (707.6 kg) caught off Cabo Blanco Peru in 1953. There are a lot of claims for world record, but the largest fish that I found is on the picture above.

Another large black marlin taken in 2001 on the Great Barrier Reef. This massive fish weighed 1,386 lbs (628.7 kg).
