Fishermen have caught a giant grouper that weighed 683 pounds (310kg) near the Nansha Islands. The fish was sold to a hotelier in Dongyuan, because apparently that's what one does upon catching an utterly massive mutant fish.



Groupers are deep sea fish that usually weigh under about 3.3 pounds, or 1.5 kilograms.

Just last month, a 50kg bighead carp was cooked in the 23nd Chinese Chef Festival in Changsa, but that was nothing compared to this monstrosity.

If that's real and not just another China-is-great BS story, I wouldn't want to eat the fish. Who knows how much shit has accumulated inside it, having grown so freakishly big and all. There's some unhealthy amounts of mercury & shit in much smaller fish, don't even want to know how much all kinds of crap does that thing have, especially knowing it has come from China with such super-strict environmental protection.

Primates are terrestrial mammals that usually weigh under about 10 pounds, or 4.5 kilograms. This one grew to 165 pounds!!!!

At least now it won't grow up to swallow children whole before one day becoming greater....more evil and fights Godzilla in a slobber knocker.

giant groupers (as the one in the article) can reach 3m in lengh and over 400kg.

Yeah you'd earn the power of FISH.

Or your wang would mutate and grow a fish head in place of the glans. Then it would look at you right in the eye whenever you took a piss, asking for death.
