Bridport fishmongers scaled new heights when they took delivery of a monster from the deep on Friday.
The giant halibut, trawled from the bottom of the North Sea, weighed in at 140 kilos and cost £1,326.
It was bought by the Bull Hotel at Bridport and delivered to wholesale fishmongers Davey’s Locker on the Dreadnought trading estate for preparation.
Boss Shaun Buller said it was by far the biggest fish they had ever had to deal with.
“It’s a monster,” he said. “It was driven here from Grimsby and it took five of us to lift it onto the slab.”
