A giant fish measuring 1.92 metres long and weighing 104kg has been caught at a reservoir in Huzhou, eastern China’s Zhejiang Province. Speaking about the giant catch, 60-year-old fisherman Wang Baiping said it was the largest he had ever seen. Wang said when he and several villagers used nets to harvest the fish one small boat even tipped over during the struggle to land it. The fish is now being displayed at a local resort pool as a tourist attraction. Doctor Yuan Leha from the Zhejiang Nature Museum said the fish is a black carp and could be as much as 20 years old.Picture: Quirky China News / Rex Features via Telegraph
