Fisherman Bjorn Floro-Larsen pulled up the fish from 400 meters depth in Trondheimsfjorden in Norway. The Cusk was so big that the fisherman even forgot his way home and to turn off the engine of his boat when he finally arrived home. He had caught the world's biggest Cusk ever.
- This is beyond all reason. I am quite shaky, and I have almost no words. I realized that it was a big fish immediately, but this, I had never expected it, says a more or less stunned Bjorn Floro-Larsen to the magazine Hooked, after having pulled in a Cusk weighing 17.3 kg from the depths of the fjord in Trondheim.
In the harbor an official weighing was conducted and the weight stabilized at 17.3 kg, meaning it's a new Norwegian record, and also a new world record, with a 100 grams margin.
- Now I'm completely exhausted but so very happy. I also went seriously wrong when heading back, and when I think about it, I forgot to turn off the engine of the boat too. This is totally sick, says Floro-Larsen laughing, while he turns his car, heading back to the harbor again to turn off the engine.
