No man can hand-fish blue fin tuna alone, meet the men who capture the giant fish using what they call the “chamber of death”

Bluefin tuna and mammoth in the North Sea
Date: 7/17/05 at 12:47PM
It is now in the Natural History Museum in Leiden.
This is only the fourth time since 1900 that this big Atlantic Ocean fish was found in The Netherlands.
The bluefin tuna is maybe the biggest bony fish in the world; even bigger than the (fresh water) Mekong giant catfish.
The biggest bluefin tuna ever found was 4,26 m long; its weight was about 900 kilogram.
This is still much smaller than the whale shark (not a bony fish).

Also found recently in the North Sea, and now in the Leiden Natural History Museum, the skull of a mammoth.
It is from about 35.000 to 50.000 ago: the Ice Age, when much of the North Sea was still land.
It is the skull of a bull mammoth of about 30 years old when he died.
