Now That's a BIG Fish!
Caught a month ago in a river in northern Thailand, this whopper of a fish was 2.7 meters long and weighed 646 pounds! It's thought to be the largest freshwater fish ever caught.

The Thai fishermen who caught the giant catfish struggled for more than an hour to land the behemoth. At first it was hoped the male fish could be returned to the river to continue its spawning migration. But the fish died and ended up feeding almost an entire village.
