800-Pound Stingray Might Possibly Be One Of The Largest Freshwater Fish Ever Recorded

TV host Jeff Corwin and a team of researchers recently captured a colossal 14-foot long, 800-pound stingray in Thailand’s Mae Klong River. They examined the fish and attached a tracking device before releasing it back into the wild. They’re saying that this stingray may even break Mekong’s giant catfish record, but it hasn’t been officially confirmed.

What may very well be the largest freshwater fish was actually captured previously in 2009 by National Geographic’s Zeb Hogan and a Bangkok-based vet by the name of Nantarika Chansue.
