Fisherman Raphael Biagini reeled in what is believed to be a 30-pound koi carp in France, where the fish are quite popular. The fish, a vivid orange, looks a great deal like a giant goldfish. The photo is several months old, but it’s buzzing right now, thanks to an article from the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

    Perhaps it’s a prop.

    Yeah, like it says in the article: he’s not holding it as if it’s that heavy.

    I have a koi pond and they get pretty big, but nowhere near that big.

    Koi can most certainly get this big, depending on how well the stock was culled. For most serious koi owners, this is not even a remarkable specimen. The size is certainly nice, but ogon (single color)are not highly sought after, and this one is rather splotchy.

    And it is not a goldfish, damn it. Both are carp, but they are remarkably different fish. At least the article got it right.
