LAMPANG — A large fish released into a public park by temple-goers turned out to be the predatorial Amazonian arapaima, officials said Monday.

 

The well-intended release at a large pond located inside Nong Krathing Park sparked a hunt for the fish due to concerns that the alien species could damage local ecology, fishery official Samatchai Thongkamchum told reporters.

My neighbour likes to stuff all kind of animals in tiny cages...he even catches wild birds with traps.

 

Can he still be a buddhist?

This fish could be easily caught, its not used being fished for. They could try dead baiting of life baiting. I caught more then a few Arapaimas even over 100kg these were fish in stocked ponds and those fish were quite smart.

 

When they are first released they are stupid and easily caught.

Would be more useful to catch & fry the morons who released it there.

I suspect it was dumped in the lake when it grew too

big for the aquarium they had it in,they can grow to

3 meters !,and it's going to eat everything else that's

in the lake.

One of my neighbours tried this once, a wild bird in a cage is not so good.

Whenever I sat around on the patio drinking I taught the bird to speak English

Needless to say the bird was released after a few months, guess my English was not liked  F&%K it

Only too typical of Thai thinking. 1. Don't know what it is; 2. I didn't think it would grow so big; 3. It was not supposed to eat my other aquarium fish or bite my hand.; 3. I think I'll just drop it in this here pond. This is same mindset that says "I can make this "U" turn; here, hold my beer and just watch this."
