This is seriously cool: a fisherman caught a 200 year old fish that was living 900 feet below the ocean's surface.
What isn't cool is this: "critics are fuming that he didn't snap a few amazing selfies and throw the majestic animal back to enjoy its old age in peace — reminding us that catch and release is the respectful, humane way to go."
Okay, idiots. Let's go over a basic fact, here. The fish was dead from decompression by the time he'd gotten it halfway up. If he'd thrown it back, it would have washed up on shore, rotten. Useless. Wasted.
That strikes me as disrespectful and inhumane.
