A monster saltwater crocodile has been caught in Darwin Harbour.

The NT's crocodile management team told 9News it was the biggest catch of the year so far, and the 50th pulled from the harbour.

It will be taken to a crocodile farm.

Recent months have seen an increase in crocodile movements, fed by heavier rain across northern Australia.

In February, two saltwater crocodiles were killed in Queensland after a fisherman went missing.

One of them had human remains in its stomach.
