The Giant Lake Biwa Catfish of Shiga, Japan

I just found out about this one.  Very interesting and odd catfish.  Could have subspecies in the same lake.

The Giant Lake Biwa Catfish is a close relative of the Wels Catfish that lives in Japan in Lake Biwa. Also known as the Biwako-ohnamazu, this fish is also the largest fish in the lake. It can grow to be 5 feet long and weigh 331 pounds.
