A man in the Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State has reportedly caught and killed a blue marlin said to be worth about 2.6 million dollars (N1.07bn).

A Blue Marlin fish is said to be valued at about $31,000 per pound which is about N14.5 million, which implies that he would have sold the fish for 2.6 million dollars which is about N1 billion.

The blue marlin is one of the open ocean’s fastest, strongest predators and one of the most highly sought-after game fishes everywhere that it lives. Reaching weights of at least 1800 pounds (~820 kg) and lengths of more than 16 feet (~5 m), the blue marlin is one of the largest species of bony fishes.

Other reports however suggest that the blue marlin is only worth that amount when caught during fishing competitions which set the prize money based on certain rules.
