I have a .pdf of the story and I'm willing to send it to people if you contact me at: fundulus at hotmail dot com. And no, I don't have any of these fishes to give anyone....

Wow, those Mekong catfish become huge! Are the Wels catfish in trouble also (in asia)?
I think that the Wels are less numerous than before, purely due to habitat degradation. Major European rivers like the Rhine and Danube have been horribly polluted for a long time which isn't good for any fish...

In Siberia, China, Korea, and Japan there is a closely related species, the Amur Catfish (Parasilurus asotus). It is fairly common.

No, the alligator gar is still the longest, certainly, and probably the heaviest. I heard over the weekend that fisheries managers in Illinois are resisting the reintroduction of alligator gar to parts of the original range in southern Illinois for fear of its voracious appetite. These are people with a puny plan, to quote my friend The Humongous.
Hmm. Road Warrior was on just the other night, and Alligator gar appetite fear is silly. I hope you set them straight.
Out of curiosity, what are they frightened of?

It would be an interesting local agitation in favor of alligator gar reintroduction that would require some education.
Hmmm...something new to work on in my spare time...
Honestly was was not even aware of this being discussed...For that matter it seems us 'tens' of Gar fishing fanatics have not even heard of this...Well well.. more stuff to begin fussing about other than getting the gator on the sport fish list in Texas
