One of the largest halibut caught off the coast of Scotland was recently bought by a local fishmonger for almost $1,400. 

The halibut, which was 8 feet long and 4 feet wide, weighed about 287 pounds (130 kg) when it was caught off the Outer Hebrides, an island chain off the cost of Scotland.

Scottish trawler Aquarius, which usually fishes for cod and haddock, caught the halibut, according to SWNS.

Though it is a huge halibut, it is still about 8 pounds lighter than the largest halibut caught off the Scottish coast.
