The world’s largest freshwater fish, the stingray, has been found in the Mekong River in Cambodia. Scientists from Cambodia and America gave this information. According to a statement released on Monday by Wonders of the Mekong, a joint research project between Cambodia and the US, a stinger was caught, which was about four meters long and weighed just 300 kilograms. It is said to be 13 feet long.
The group reported that in 2005, 293 kg of freshwater catfish were caught in Thailand. According to the statement, the stingray was caught by a local fisherman south of Stung Trang in northeastern Cambodia. He then reported the matter to a team of scientists from the Wonders of the Mekong Project.
