Small Fish Eats Big Fish


Local fisherman, McPherson ‘Dorson’ Wright recently landed a fish that may be heading into the world record books.

Mr. Wright said that normally one expects ‘big fish to eat down the small fish”, but the hungry little fish broke that rule in a big way.

While fishing in about 1,400 feet of water off the South Coast of Grand Cayman, Mr. Wright’s attention was drawn to an object that was floating on the surface nearby. He motored over to investigate and picked up a dead fish that simply amazed him. It is now also astonishing scientists both here and in the United States.

 In the belly of the fish was another fish, and this one was clearly much, much bigger. In fact when it was measured it was determined that the fish he picked up had eaten a ‘snake mackerel’ that was more than four times its own length.
