A Bangkok fisherman has earned himself a spot in the record books by catching what's believed to be the world's largest freshwater fish.
- That's according to researchers with Wonders of the Mekong, who say the giant stingray that was reeled in on June 13th measured 13 feet from snout to tail and weighed a staggering 660 pounds. The previous record holder was a 646-pound catfish caught in Thailand in 2005.
- “Yeah, when you see a fish this size, especially in freshwater, it is hard to comprehend, so I think all of our team was stunned,” says Wonders of the Mekong leader Zeb Hogan. “The fact that the fish can still get this big is a hopeful sign for the Mekong River."
