CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS (AP) - A 809-pound tiger shark caught in the Gulf of Mexico ended up feeding about 90 poor and homeless people.

The shark was caught by fisherman Ryan Spring of San Antonio, who had said he caught the shark after reeling it in for more than seven hours, reports The Associated Press.

Instead of tossing the catch, he donated it to Timon's Ministries in Corpus Christi, Texas where about 75 pounds of the shark's meat ended up.

The shark was the largest fish ever donated to the center, according to the director.

A volunteer chef breaded and baked the shark meat.
