The Giant Siamese Carp or giant barb (Catlocarpio siamensis) can in the big rivers of Thailand and Vietnam reach the weight of 300 kg. They are these days extremely rare as pollution and excessive commercial fishing for them has nearly wiped them out from their natural habitat. Fortunately for anglers they have been successfully bred and been stocked in many lakes around Thailand. Stocked fish have been caught up to 250 lb / 120 kg size.

MAX SIZE:600 lb / 300 kg
MAX LENGHT:9 feet / 3 meter
