    Looks like a fine example of Catla catla. Must be in India somewhere.....

    Upon explaining to an Indian fish farmer that a catfish is ready for market in only 16 months, he replied, "16 months!, If it took me that long to grow a fish to market I would surely starve."

    I asked him what kind of fish he grew and how quickly. He told me a catla reaches 5 Kg (11 pounds) in just one year!

    You are correct. Siamese Giant Carp or Catlocarpio siamensis to be exact. Check out this great article of the world record fish. 265lbs! Imagine a Kohaku of that size....

    Looks like the growth is stunted. It must be in dirty water.
