One of the reports which was sourced on social media stated;
This man reportedly caught a Blue Marlin fish days ago in Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State and killed it. Little did he know that he has eaten the wealth for his generations to come.
A Blue Marlin fish is valued at about $31,000 per pound which is about N14.5 million. If the reports are correct, he would have sold the fish for 2.6 million dollars which is about N1.2 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.
