Blue Marlin ‘Caught’ in Wales

Earlier this year, a good size swordfish washed up on a beach in south Wales and now an ever rarer fish has shown up, a blue marlin. This 9ft 6in specimen was found dead on a beach in West Wales and is said to be the first marlin ever ‘caught’ in Wales. Normally the blue marlin is found in the warmer waters of the Mid Atlantic and Caribbean.


“To find one on the beach in Britain is unheard of and I’ve been told this is the first one recorded in British waters.”
