If you believe you’ve discovered all the Ocean Mysteries, wait a moment, as we have some of the most puzzling, mysterious, largest, and boldest Mysteries that have been brought up from the depths of the ocean onto the beaches: bluefin tuna.
These fishermen were on the mission of finding the biggest bluefin tuna, and let’s see what they found.
Something big has been caught on the reel. These pictures prove that they got it. It’s a tuna weighing 960 pounds and measuring 10 feet long. This Atlantic bluefin tuna was caught off the Pembroke Shirt Coast, United Kingdom, and the group of men who caught it have a giant bluefin tuna worth one million dollars. That’s a lot of zeros right there! It’s the catch of a lifetime. It’s hard to believe that these huge beasts are just hidden somewhere in the ocean.
Next is the giant catfish. This fisherman from Italy captured the biggest catfish from River Poe with the help of a rod and reel. The catfish weighed a massive 280 pounds and measured eight feet and nine inches in length. The fisherman spent 40 minutes reeling in the big giant. Although catfish are pretty common to catch, this one was considered rare due to its enormous size.
He released a rare giant Mekong catfish back into the water after measuring it and taking some pictures with it. This catfish was captured in Cambodia and was six and a half feet long, weighing more than 200 pounds. It was also released after a health check-up and a quick photo session.
An expired humpback whale washed up near Amazon Toady, Durban, South Africa, surprising onlookers with its massive body. The weight of the humpback, which was 17,637 pounds, caught everyone by surprise. Unfortunately, they couldn’t tow it back to the sea due to the surrounding rocks, so it suffered a miserable fate.
The locals came and butchered the whale, cutting it into pieces to stock down meat and blubber. Whaling is illegal in South Africa, so this was a rare opportunity for them. The smell from the rotting carcass must have been terrible.
There was a heartwarming humpback rescue in the resort town of Mar Del Tuyu, about 200 miles south of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The enormous humpback whale accidentally got washed up on the beach, and residents rushed to help it. However, it was quite challenging for them to push the whale back into the water due to its heavy weight.
In 2015, a very long fish washed up on the beach of Catalina Island. It was about five meters long and had its tail cut off, but it was still considered the longest type of bony fish. Scientists thought the fish might have been sick or disoriented due to storms in the ocean, which caused it to wash ashore. Despite the birds eating parts of its head and tail, the fish was still an amazing sight. This big fish is called the oarfish.
Another huge fish, the stingray, measuring 13 feet long and weighing 661 pounds, was caught in a remote fishing village near the Mekong River. This makes it the heaviest freshwater fish ever documented. It’s surprising to find such a large fish in a freshwater reserve, as they usually grow slowly. Luckily, the people who caught it released it back into the water after a short time. However, not all stories have a happy ending. Some people dragged a stingray onto the beach as a joke, but they faced the anger of onlookers who scolded them and returned the poor ray to the water.
On a different occasion, beachcombers were amazed when they spotted a huge leatherback turtle, which is one of the largest turtle species. This three-meter-long turtle weighed over 500 pounds and was seen in Mauritius.
So, these turtles come to the shore to lay their eggs in a big hole they make with their flippers. The newly hatched turtles are released into the ocean at night to protect them from predators.
Next, there’s this huge ocean sunfish that got caught in a fishing net off the coast. It weighed a massive 4,410 pounds and was measured at 3.2 meters long and 2.9 meters wide. The locals tried to measure it but it was so big it nearly broke their 2,000-pound scale. It’s the first time anyone has caught such a monstrous ocean sunfish.
Then, there’s a mola mola (another name for the ocean sunfish) that was spotted by divers off the coast of Portugal. It had a big surprising face that amazed the onlookers. Interestingly, their mouths never fully close, which adds to their strange appearance.
And let’s not forget the giant manta ray that washed up off the coast of Karnataka, India. It weighed a whopping 1,653 pounds, and they had to call a crane to lift it up and put it in a truck.
Lastly, there’s another manta ray that washed up on a beach entangled in a huge fishing net, and the locals came to its aid. It was a challenging task because the manta ray weighed thousands of pounds, but with everyone’s help, they managed to cut it free and return it to the water where it swam freely.
A female Orca got stuck on the rocks on the northern coast of Colombia, but a team of researchers and volunteers kept it alive for eight hours. At first, they didn’t think the Orca would survive because there wasn’t enough water, but they used pumps and sheets to keep it wet. Finally, the water level rose, and the Orca was able to get back into the water by moving a big rock that was blocking its way.
In 1986, two local legends, Frank Mundus and Donnie Braddock, caught the world’s biggest great white shark, weighing 3,450 pounds and measuring 17 feet three inches long. They caught it 28 miles off the coast of Montauk. The news of their catch spread quickly, making them heroes, but there were some controversies about the method used. However, in the end, it was declared legitimate. Remarkably, no one has broken their record since then.

On this South African beach, beachgoers were surprised to find a stranded giant squid lying on the shore. It was a massive squid, measuring five meters long and weighing around 660 pounds. Keep in mind that the squid was only two years old and had yet to reach its full size.
Here’s another baby squid that washed ashore on the Japanese coast. It was found alive and filmed but unfortunately later passed away. It measured 10 feet long and weighed 177 pounds. Watch the squid enjoying a nice shower bath and having the time of its life.
