100 METRIC TONS OF SEA CATFISH CAUGHT AT KHAI CREEK

In an unusual happening, trained fishermen caught more than 100 metric tons of sea catfish on Saturday evening after a fishing boat from Rehri noticed a mass-scale aggregation of giant sea catfish at the mouth of Khai Creek in the Indus Delta. Considering this aggregation too big to be harvested by a single boat, the fishermen sought help from six other boats operating in the vicinity. It took more than five hours to harvest the entire aggregation and a total of 100 metric tons of sea catfish were harvested. The catch was auctioned at Karachi Fish Harbour fetching a price of Rs110 per kg, making a total of Rs11 million.
