Record Bluefin Tuna Price and Grandpa

I was interested in the BBC’s report of a record sale price for a bluefin tuna. In 1951 my grandfather caught a world record (by weight) bluefin tuna. The record stood, according to family lore, for about 5 hours when someone brought in a bigger fish to the same port. That record stood for decades. The photo here is of my grandfather and his catch.
