FISH ARE GROWING LARGER THAN THEY EVER HAVE IN HISTORY, BECAUSE THE PRIMARY DRIVER OF THE SIZE, FERTILITY AND LONGEVITY OF ANY ORGANISM IS THE HEALTH OF ITS ETHERIC ENVIRONMENT.
The current Florida All Tackle state record permit fish, from 2019, was 341% larger than the previous record holder.
The current Washington state record bluefin tuna, caught in August 2019, was 152% percent larger - well more than double the size - of a prior record holder, caught in 2012.
The Wyoming state record freshwater drum fish, from July 2018, weighed 22.58 pounds, and was 109% larger than previous 17-pound, 4-ounce record holder from 1993.
The current Idaho catch and release state record for Garrard rainbow trout, from 2019, is more than double the size of the previous record holder, from 2018.
The current Wyoming state record freshwater drum fish, from 2018, was almost twice as large as a previous record holder from 1993.
FISH GROWTH RATES ARE INCREASING, GOING FORWARD IN TIME, WHEN THE OPPOSITE SHOULD BE THE CASE
The growth rate of Buffalo Sucker fish in Ohio from 2013 to 2018 was more than double that seen from 1983 to 2013.
The average rate of growth of the Florida state record flathead catfish from 2011 to 2016 was double the rate of growth seen from 2004 to 2011.
The annual growth rate of the flathead catfish in Pennsylvania from 2006 to 2019 was 69% higher than it was from 1985 to 2006.
The current Georgia state record blue catfish, caught in 2017, is 16% larger than the previous record holder, from 2010. The growth rate from 2010 to 2017 is roughly twice that seen from 1979 to 2010.
The weight of the world-record Northern Snakehead fish increased by a bit less than one percent from 2004 to 2014, and then increased by just over 11% from 2014 to 2018.
