Quang Nam’s fishermen catch giant pregnant ray

LookAtVietnam - After over one hour struggling with a ray over 200kg, some Quang Nam fishermen landed the fish on May 16.

Senior fishermen reported that this is the biggest ever ray swimming near the shore that they have seen in their lives. The fish carried a big egg sack.

The giant fish was caught at a coral reef near the coast by seven fishermen. "It took us over one hour to bring it to the shore," reported one fisherman.

The fish was chopped up the same day while hundreds of people watched.

"We saw a big egg sack in the stomach. Perhaps it was seeking a place to lay eggs when we caught it," the fisherman added.
