Huge Fish

Big fish
“Now, this is one heck of a big fish!”

Shown above is an enormous catfish. Even my Thai colleague was flabbergasted by the image on my monitor. My strict diet relies on fish so I could not resist posting this picture which demonstrated the size of the very unusual ocean salvage. Unfortunately, it will end up on somebody’s table.

Fishermen in northern Thailand have netted a fish as big as a grizzly bear, a 646-pound Mekong giant catfish, the heaviest recorded since Thai officials started keeping records in 1981. The behemoth was caught in the Mekong River and may be the largest freshwater fish ever found.
