Cambodian fishermen catch a four-meter-long, 180-kilogram giant stingray in the Mekong River, one of the largest freshwater fish in the world.

Freshwater stingray is a protected species threatened by overfishing, pollution and habitat loss, and has returned to the water after being measured and weighed by scientists at the site ‘Wonders of the Mekong’.

Last week in Stung Tren province (north) fishermen accidentally caught a ray after swallowing a small fish caught in a hook.

The Mekong (4,350 km), one of the longest rivers in Asia, has the world’s most important aquatic biodiversity, with more than 1,000 species of fish, next to the Amazon.

Giant catfish-like specimens that reach three meters and weigh up to 300 kg live in its water.

According to scientists, the river, which reaches a depth of 80 meters in some places, can provide even larger varieties.

Zeb Hogan, an American biologist at the University of Nevada and director of the US-funded “Wonders of Mekong” project, says it is full of “hidden and invisible ecosystems.”

Essential to the survival of millions of people in Southeast Asia, the Mekong and its fauna are threatened by dozens of dams built by Beijing on the river and its tributaries in China, Laos and Cambodia.

Pollution is another concern. Plastic debris was also found in the deeper parts of the river, as well as lost or abandoned “ghost nets” by fishermen, which could trap fish.
