    Default Gigantic monster fish washes up on Australian shore



    A monster-sized 330-pound fish was found washed up on the Australian shore last week.
    John and Riley Lindholm from the Australian state of Victoria were walking on Moore Park Beach in southern Queensland when they came across the strange looking fish, ABC News reported.

    John Lindholm, who has worked as a charter skipper most of his life, said he could not identify what type of fish it was.

    Believed to be a groper. Record for one is over 800 pounds. http://www.iflscience.com/plants-and...tralian-shore/

    He identified it as a groper, but some people in the local community facebook group suggested it may have been a tripletail. The Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol seem to agree with Lindholm’s assessment of the animal.

    Doesn't look like a triple tail at all:

    I've seen bigger grouper in Key West.. Helped eat one that could have eaten me. 600 lbs.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
