q The 14kg cod will be cooked in a pan that normally costs £500 a day to hire

q The cod will take over one hour to cook

q The giant fish and chips will make up around 70 portions

q If one person wanted to buy it the giant meal they would have to stump up around £300

q The current halibut and chips record involved a fish weighing 40lb and was set by The Wensleydale Heifer, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park
