shame they had to kill it and research it. be nice to have left it and tracked it with a radio tracker thing perhaps to see how much longer it could live for....

That's kinda sad. Unbelievable that it was that age and still capable of reproducing.

Tan.B you're spot on.. unfortunately, commercial fishermen have a fixed set of priorities, and preserving aquatic life ain't too high on that list.. think of it this way, for every tin of tuna or sardines we turn into a sandwich-paste, think of how many different species of fish ( like that Rockfish or maybe even undiscovered species) that get caught in the nets that're never heard about.. at least this fish was caught by a crew that either accidentally or intentionally (knowing how important a find it was) brought it to the attention of the right people.

P.S. I happen to like Tuna-melts a lot.. hope no undiscovered species went unnoticed and unreported because of that!
