Over the weekend, a video circulated about a big fish story in Longport - was it true?

The video, which has since been removed from Facebook, showed a flopping tuna that supposedly jumped out of the water and landed on the Longport rock jetty.

The big question that many were asking - can you keep such a fish - if it indeed landed itself, or do you need a license of special permit?

It appears that one man claimed the tuna and dragged it off the rocks and out onto the road.


While the entire video seems to be gone, there does exist a couple photos and a story of the encounter. This from the Facebook page of One Stop Bait and Tackle:
