A kaluga sturgeon weighing 617-kilograms was dragged out of the river by Chinese fishermen in Heilongjiang province on Tuesday, and it was kept alive. According to Daily Mail:
The sturgeon could have made for quite a feast, but after it was pulled out of the water on Tuesday this particular beast was taken to a local breeding centre.
Breeders told China Central Television the female is carrying 1.2million eggs, which will be collected and artificially inseminated before the fry are released back into the river.
After jump, a slightly different take on “big fish,” in the form of a neat Chinese animation (no relation to the Tim Burton film).
