On the certified scale the black registered 400 kilograms, or 881 pounds. Interestingly, the fish measured 142 inches from the lower jaw to the tail fork and had a girth of 82 inches. Usually with these measurements, the fish would be much larger, but an autopsy revealed that the fish had no roe or stomach contents and had lost every bit of blood during the journey in. Had the fish been caught prior to spawning, it could have weighed over 1,000 pounds. After a night in cold storage, the marlin was cleaned and the meat smoked for the local community.
