A huge catfish about the length of a man was caught near the Louvre Museum in Paris. This is reported by the Daily Mail.
When a fisherman pulled a giant fish out of the Seine River, startled people began to gather around. “Someone shouted it was Loch Ness of the Seine,” says Lina Lovisa Nilsson, who witnessed the scene and filmed it. “People called the fish a prehistoric dinosaur and a monster.”
Nilsson suggests it is one of the largest fish ever hooked in central Paris. She found out that the length of the largest catfish caught in the Seine was 1.9 meters. According to her, the Louvre catfish was comparable in size to it. “I have not seen anything like this in any of the major cities that I visited,” the woman says.
In 2015, it was reported that a fisherman from Italy, Yuri Grisandi, caught a large catfish in the Po River. The catch weighed about 120 kilograms.
