According to US and Cambodian scientists, the world’s largest freshwater fish has been caught in Cambodia’s Mekong River.
The stingray was nearly four metres long from snout to tail and weighed just under 300 kilograms (660 pounds).

The previous world record was a Mekong giant catfish weighing 293 kilograms (646 pounds) caught in Thailand in 2005.

A local fisherman caught the stingray on the night of June 13th, south of Stung Treng.
