The 1986 stranding of a black marlin off East Coast Park
On Sunday 23rd November 1986, a call was made to the then Raffles Museum about a stranded Black Marlin on East Coast beach. It was in a pretty good condition and so the specimen was taxidermised. The Black Marlin was skinned and a cast was made from its body. The skin was draped around the cast which was stuffed with straw.
