Really Real Big Fish

Wow, It was just a month ago we were amazed by a 124-pound catfish. Move over for this big guy. This must have been a big lake. Thanks to SJ Field Correspondent Chris Elder for the lead on this story.

A 646.2-pound (293 kg) Mekong giant catfish, netted in Thailand, may be the largest freshwater fish ever found. The fish was documented as part of a World Wildlife Fund-National Geographic project to identify and study and conserve freshwater fish around the world that exceed 6 feet in length and 200 pounds in weight.
