France: An orange colored fish, which is considered to be the world’s biggest golden fish, was caught by a lucky British fisherman.
According to a foreign news agency, 42-year-old British man Andy Hackett was out fishing with French fishermen in the Bluewater Lake when he caught a 20-kilogram golden fish, called The Carat. The so-called fish was reportedly released into the lake as a juvenile 20 years ago.
According to a fisheries spokesman, the angler who caught the fish was very excited, while the fisherman said, “I always knew the carat was there but never thought I would catch it.”
“I knew it was a big fish when he took my bait,” Hackett said.
After catching it, Hackett explained to the giant fish that it was a hybrid of a leather carp and a koi carp and after a 25 minute fight, the goldfish, which was a white whale to many, was in my net.
Goldfish typically kept as pets are no more than a few inches in length, but they are part of the carp family that can reach impressive proportions.
