Giant Catfish

I have always seen catfish in the market and my family has cooked some for an occasion or two. I was shocked though when I saw this:

Oh my gosh right? It's a 646 pound catfish caught by 2 Thai fishermen in the Mekong River in Thailand. I am just so amazed to see these types of species live! They say that there are 6 propsed dams to be built in this river. I don't know if it will do more good than harm. About 75,000 villagers will be displaced and species like this endangered giant catfish will lose their homes too. Sad
