A 10-year-old boy has caught a 220kg tuna off the coast of Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Canadian Koen Norton is hoping to secure the International Gamefish Association record for largest tuna caught by a child 10-years-old or younger.

He was on his family's boat when he caught the massive fish on Sunday.

Koen has been fishing since he was about five.
