Famous Funnies #21
Jewfish are also known as Atlantic goliath groupers, can weigh in at up to 790 lbs., and should warrant 4 Hit Dice in Hideouts & Hoodlums stats. H&H is oddly missing giant fish, so something like this should be in the next edition.
Sharks are already statted for H&H, as has already been mentioned.
Swordfish can get even bigger than jewfish (Wikipedia tells me they reach a maximum of 1,430 lbs.). I would give them 8 HD. In fact, swordfish are more likely to be in the next edition than goliath groupers.
Giant squids were statted in Supplement II: All-American.
The Alley Oop dinosaur of the day was actually -- appropriate to this post-- a giant prehistoric fish once known as dinichthys, but Wikipedia now tells me is more properly known as dunkleosteus.
