    Wow

    quick synopsis: they caught this fish, tried to harvest it for sperm for a captive breeding program, and then release it back into the river. The fish died during the ordeal, so the village butchered it, and ate it. The fish is considered sacred, so eating it is said to be good luck.

    Yeah, that's definately nuts! I can't believe the cut it up though! That would have been cool to see in a museum. I guess it is a fishing town though, and a fish like that could put out a lot of meat!

    That fish is huge, they say it took a team of fisherman to pull it in how many people were on that team?

    Re: Want to see the largest ever fish caught in Fresh Water.

    "The species is listed as critically endangered by the World Conservation Union (IUCN) and faces a high risk of extinction in the wild. The rare specimen, captured in the Mekong River in Chiang Khong district, is the largest since Thailand began keeping records in 1981."

    That's not cool. There are not many of this species alive anymore, and they just harvested the largest on on record. If anyone were to pull a stunt like that in or from America the IUCN would be all over them... That's sad that these people can't realize that they too need to be aware of what they are catching. I work for the Game Fish and Parks, and with my knowlege of American fish, that wish would have been terrific breeding stock for future generations. I find it sad.
