Thai fishery department official catches a Mekong giant catfish to harvest its eggs in Bangsai
A Thai fishery department official catches a 30 kg (66 lbs) Mekong giant catfish to harvest its eggs, as part of a captive breeding programme, at the Inland Aquaculture Research Institute in the Bangsai district of Ayutthaya, 80 km (50 miles) outside Bangkok, August 16, 2006. The eggs will be fertilised with the sperm from a male giant catfish as part of the Thai fishery department's captive breeding programme started in 2004. This catfish specie is one of the world's largest freshwater fish -- growing up to 3 metres and 300 kg (660 lbs) -- and is considered critically endangered. It is native to the Mekong region and a range of conservation initiatives for the giant fish is being carried out by the fishery departments of Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.
