Mega Mahseer from Sarawak!

Some of the biggest Thai Mahseer (Tor Tambroides) that ever been caught comes from Malaysia's Sarawak state on Borneo. The biggest reported was from Kapit in Sarawak and it pushed the scale to 32 kg! The mighty Rajang river and its tributaries has produced many of the big Mahseers in Sarawak. Below you can see how these fantastic fish look like:
