Being one of the fastest fish on the planet, the marlin has never been an easy catch for fishermen. Hence, you can imagine the excitement and thrill one group of fishermen off Cairns, Australia, felt when they hooked a 600lb monster. Unfortunately, they were not the only ones looking for the fish.
After they were able to hook onto the beast, the men soon realized the problem they were facing when a group of dangerous tiger sharks decided to feat on the fish. Things took a rather undesirable turn as two enormous sharks fighting over their prey rolled in the water and headed towards the boat.
As the giant sharks began to create a whirlpool in water and the entire situation began to go out of control, one of the men suddenly began to pull up the line. In the end instead of a huge 600lb marlin they were hoping to land, was just the severed head of the fish.
Its entire body had been eaten by tiger sharks. The marlin which has the capability of reaching speeds of 68mph was helpless when surrounded by the most dangerous sea predators.
