The largest fish is a Blue Marlin caught out of Hawaii. It was not ever entered as a record for the International Game Fish Association (World governing body for gamefishing) because more than one angler fought the fish. This disqualifies the catch. It weighted 1805 pounds. The largest shark is another issue all together.
