90 kg Wallago catfishes lurking in Salween River.

Posted on May 8th, 2017

A Wallago with an estimated length of 2 meters and approximately 90 kg (200 lb) was caught in the Salween River and Moei River in the 1960s. We found a photo of a commercially caught giant catfish. The shape of the mouth indicates that it is a Wallago attu and not a Goonch. This would be the largest photographed Wallago by far. The Salween River system is still undiscovered by the international angling tourism.
