SOUTHWEST FLORIDA, Fla. — A massive grouper was caught off the southwest Florida coast.

The 350-pound Warsaw grouper was caught Dec. 29 in 600 feet of water, officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission posted on the FWC Facebook page.

The commission said biologists estimated the fish to be 50 years old, which would make it the oldest sample collected for the aging program.

FWC said getting samples from fish like the one caught, which are that size and age, are rare.
