    I was reading the local Jenks newspaper and they had an article on the Oklahoma Aquarim. It stated that the aquarium had six Mekong cats (small ones) on display. The Mekong is the largest Catfish in the world. They recently netted the world record (646 pounds) in Thailand.

    Are They Going To Set Any Free In The River?

    I didn't see any mention of that, Rick. They're endangered so my guess would be, probably not.

    I am also guessing they don't allow fishing in the building.

    The aquarium in Jenks is very nice. I just wish a guy was allowed to do a bit of fishing in there. I seen the article on the mekong cats last spring in the catfish insider. If only blues got half that size.
