A 293-kg (646-lb) Mekong giant catfish, netted in Thailand recently, 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 two metres in length.
