Paul, 45, from Norwich, caught it off Norway and estimates it to be up to 90 years old.

He said: “It dragged the boat half a mile.

“It took three days for my shoulders to recover.

“I put it back. It’s breeding material.”

“It was a bit emotional.

“I spent many years trying to catch a fish like that.”

Atlantic halibut is one of the largest bony fish in the world.
