Nicknamed the "swamp king," the catfish was stranded in shallow water more than two miles away from its home. The rescuers hauled the fish out with a giant net and transported it back home on a motorbike trailer, with the entire rescue taking more than six hours. The Mekong giant catfish is the world’s largest scaleless freshwater fish and are also endangered. Overfishing and habitat destruction threaten the survival of this wild species.
