Could there be more million pound fish swimming off Cornwall?

Pirate FM told you how a group of kayakers found the dead bluefin tuna at Kingsand.

It is worth a fortune but they aren't allowed to sell it because the species is so endangered.

But they say the chances of finding another are slim.

Matt Slater from Cornwall Wildlife Trust tells us you never know what is out there, he said: "It just highlights how amazing our wildlife is, we have such a huge diversity of marine life on our doorstep, not many people appreciate how varied it is and how special it is, it's only when something like this comes along and the world's media gets excited that we really appreciate it.

"It's not unusual for one to come into our waters, if the population did start to come back then I'm sure we'd start to see more of them, of course they are quite rare and it's very unlikely we'll get more sightings but it just highlights that our waters are home to lots if interesting species."
