Record Goldfish: We all are very happy to see the golden fish i.e. Goldfish. In our mind, Goldfish is created as a small fish. But, you will be surprised to know that goldfish can be more than 30 kg. While fishing in France, a British fisherman caught goldfish weighing more than 30 kg.
World’s heaviest goldfish can become record
According to the news of the New York Post, 42-year-old British fisherman Andy Hackett was fishing in Bluewater Lakes in Champagne, France. During this, 30.5 kg goldfish came in his catch. He has named this big goldfish The Carrot. This is the largest goldfish ever caught. This ‘The Carat’ weighs 13.6 kg more than the goldfish that was caught by Jason Fugate in Minnesota, USA in 2019. It is being claimed about this fish that it is the world’s heaviest goldfish.
The goldfish weighing 30.5 kg caught by Andy Hackett is of a hybrid species. It is a hybrid species of Koi Carp and Leter Carp. Andy said after catching this fish that I always knew carats were here, but never thought I would catch him. It took Andy 25 minutes to catch the world’s largest goldfish. Andy said that I knew it was big, but when this fish got stuck in my bait, it started moving up and down. After this when we brought it out of the lake, we saw that it is orange in color, catching it is very exciting, but it is a matter of luck.
