MALAYSIA: found a giant size arapaima

The past week, an huge  Amazon Amazon arapaima, one of the largest type of freshwater fish in the world, was found under the Sungai Johor bridge in Malaysia.

The fish was discovered by the riverbank by a local resident, in the early morning.

When the fish was found it was already dying. He had to seek the help of four other friends just to bring it to land using a wire.

Probably during the huge floods some years ago the big arapaima escaped from a private fishery breeding pond, and continue to grow in this huge size.

the fish wasn't weighted but seem to be well over 250 lb.
