We endeavor to keep these lists of record fish as accurate and up to date as possible. However, claims for new record fish are submitted on a regular basis and the process of verifying a record is lengthy, requiring the British Record Fish Committee to meet in London to decide fish which have been submitted as British records. It can take up to a year between a fish being submitted for a claim and being verified by the committee. We aim to keep these lists as accurate and up to date as possible.
