The Giant Siamese Carp is considered to be a delicacy throughout Asia, it is a very meaty fish, weighing over 600lbs, and Thailand is where the worlds most prolific carps are found along with over 700 other pieces of fresh water fish. In parts of bankbook this gigantic fish is seen lurking beneath the murky depts.

The story of Moby Dick

Did you know that there are large descriptions of monsters fishes found in the bible? With strange sounding names, like Leviathan, behemoth, and water Serpent, they are found in the ancient Old Testament book of job, Psalms and Isaiah. These monster fishes are equivalent to the size of a mini bus, possibly bigger with the ability to swallow a person whole. Sometimes predatorily the hunting for food which would be unfortunately smaller fishes, the crawling monster fish is mention in the book of job five times.

The discomfort Job is made more painful by intermittently describing this beast which resembles Satan, as a monster that can not be tame, Depicted in the story of Moby Dick, and has since become synonymous with any large sea creature. Leviathan is the meanest beast that inhabits the sea.
And the psalmist declared how God would crush the head of Leviathan. Psalms 74:14
O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures. Here is the ocean, vast and wide, teeming with life of every kind, both large and small. See the ships sailing along, and Leviathan, which you made to play in the sea. Psalms 104:24-26.

Other Chapters of the bible describe the monster leviathan not as a fish, but rather as a strange looking serpent, a dangerous kind of creature that you would not want to mess with. It was known in old folk lore and hunting legends that God created sea monsters and other crocodiles, some with his horns like Behemoth that will gore with stupendous strength, the oversize monster inhabit the murky depts.
In that day the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong, Will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; And He will slay the reptile that is in the sea. Isaiah 27:1
As we take a closer look at the gigantic fish call Leviathan, from a biblical perspective, it’s possibly the largest fish on earth, and may have some connection with the monster that swallow Jonah. Anyone unfortunately found loitering in its path, would end up in a state of fearful shock.

Many believe it’s not a good idea for these monster fishes to be caught, but they should be left alone as they are truly natural wonders of earth, they also give the impression of the remains of a bygone age, when dinosaur ruled the land. Some merchandiser sells alligator gar at their pet stores, while others would run a mile seeing anything bigger than 6ft.
Even though there are some very big fishes lurking around in deep waters, a person can get an almighty shock seeing something unusual in size gazing at them from a few feet of water in the local river, some of these fishes are formidable in sizes others are ugly, and so grotesque and aggressive, that they can scared the living daylights out of a person, especially if they are hungry.
Monstrous fishes, over 30inch to the size of goliath breeding, can also be found in parts of Africa, the smaller ones are commonly known as Tiger Characin which is a predatory fish feeding on smaller fishes, the tiger Characin originates from South America. But larger fish looking more like monsters are found in Alligator pond in St Elizabeth Jamaica.

The Alligator Gar is the second largest freshwater fish in the United States and a has ferocious appearance and devilish appetite, it can reach weights of over 300 pounds and are commonly found in the wild waters of trinity river in Texas, and the Mississippi River, but can also be found in lakes that connects with the Mississippi River.

The Giant Siamese Carp is considered to be a delicacy throughout Asia, it is a very meaty fish, weighing over 600lbs, and Thailand is where the worlds most prolific carps are found along with over 700 other pieces of fresh water fish. In parts of bankbook this gigantic fish is seen lurking beneath the murky depts. with other catfish and the monster fish arapaima all of which grow in excess to frightful proportion.
The Yangtze River is believed to be home of the largest freshwater fish in the People’s Republic of China, stretching to the monstrous size of over 60ft. The Chinese Paddlefish is also known as the elephant fish, because it’s long snout, along with the heavy Giant White Sturgeon fish with its sweet meat that is considered to be a rare delicacy. These two goliath looking fishes are found mainly in the Yangtze River in the Peoples republic of China; the Giant While Sturgeon can reach dynamic lengths of over 12ft and weigh more than 900 pounds.

The paddlefish is considered to be one of the world’s largest freshwater fish, feeding on crabs and other smaller fishes; Paddlefish is plentiful in weight reaching a mega size of over 1000lbs.
This would be the choice menu served up for imperial celebration, in Beijing we were treated with exotic seaweed rolls and bites of raw tuna, sushi is not only raw fish, but can extend to raw chicken.
