Fisherman Finds Unopened Bottle Of Fireball Whisky Inside A Fish

Fisherman Finds Unopened Bottle Of Fireball Whisky Inside A Fish

That'd be one spicy fish and chips

You may have seen some impressive things labelled as the 'catch of the day', but they surely won't be as bizarre as this one - a fisherman found an unopened bottle of whisky inside a fish. Watch below:

With the video surfacing on TikTok, it's currently unclear where these men were on the open ocean.

But what is clear is that what they found inside their fish was way more remarkable than the size of their sea creature.

In the clip, the fisherman can be seen popping the fish on a table to be filleted, first carving off a large-sized piece of flesh from one side.

He then gets to work on gutting the innards of the fish and notices something unusual about its stomach.


The fisherman cuts into the organ and squeezes out the strange looking object to reveal a full, unopened bottle of Fireball Whisky.

At this point, he says to his pals that he's hit the 'jackpot'.

The video has made its way onto TikTok where people have been trying to work out whether the footage was real - and if so, how the fish managed to devour it whole. Surely something that large would have blocked its stomach?

Some people are even suggesting that someone simply shoved the bottle down the throat of the creature after bringing it onboard, and then filmed the video to make it seem like an impressive prize.

One thing here is certain - it's sadly not unusual for ocean creatures to swallow mankind's rubbish (although why anyone would throw out a perfectly good bottle of Fireball is anyone's guess).

In particular, plastic waste has been collecting in the ocean for years, causing harm to marine life.

Researchers discovered this Cuvier's beaked whale had consumed up to 40 kilograms of plastic before its untimely death in 2019.

It was found dead in the Compostela Valley and an autopsy was carried out by staff from Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Fishery Management Regulatory Division.

Marine biologist Darrell Blatchley, who led the autopsy, told CNN its cause of death was dehydration and starvation due to swallowing so much plastic.

"I was not prepared for the amount of plastic," he told the news outlet.

"Forty kilos roughly of rice sacks, grocery bags, banana plantation bags, and general plastic bags. Sixteen rice sacks total.

"It was so big; the plastic was beginning calcification."
