On the Mekong River in Cambodia, villagers caught the world’s largest freshwater fish ever recorded, a 661-pound stingray, according to researchers (about 300 kilograms).

It took a dozen men to drag the massive fish to shore.

The four-meter (13-foot) female was released back into the river after being electronically tagged to allow scientists to monitor her movement and behavior. She was given the name Boramy, which means “full moon” in Khmer.

“This is very exciting news because it was the world’s largest (freshwater) fish,” said biologist Zeb Hogan, ex-host of the “Monster Fish” show on the National Geographic Channel and now part of Wonders of the Mekong, a conservation project on the river.

 “It is also exciting news because it means that this stretch of the Mekong is still healthy…. It is a sign of hope that these huge fish still live (here).”
