Ballroom dance instructor and hobby-fisherman Minoru Higa has caught a 2.7-meter long moray. He said of the catch, “It was a hard work.” Before being pulled in, it struggled to escape, and swam back and forth for 50 meters along the dock.

On the ground, the moray floundered, creating a clackety-clack noise that surprised the people gathered around.

A curious cat timidly approached. Higa’s friend Terukazu Taketomi said with a smile, “We can create dishes for 100 people from the moray. We will hold a banquet tonight.”

It was carved up at the scene.
