A GIANT tuna fish caught off the coast of Donegal is to end up on local dinner plates.
Two restaurants, Letterkenny's Yellow Pepper and Rathmullan House Hotel, paid a four-figure sum to buy the massive tuna, which was caught off Portnoo in recent days.
The monster fish, weighing more than 300lbs, was landed by Donal McMenamin off Portnoo.
Kieran Davis (pictured), from the Yellow Pepper, estimated they will be able to get 500 portions from their share of the giant tuna. "Our chefs are planning all sorts of dishes with it," he said. Head chef at Rathmullan House Hotel, Kelan McMichael, said the fish ticks all the boxes. "I'm very excited by it and we're going to do so much with it, from sushi to chargrill."
