You might think a fish this big might not be appetizing, but it's simply delicious! The arapaima used to be abundant, but overfishing has sadly made them rare. One has to wonder how many species must suffer to satiate the world...

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

My, it is massive, isn't it? Not just large, but the largest river-dwelling fish in the world, it's said. Records indicate a specimen some 200 inches in length has been sighted before... Looking at it now, the theory that this fish hasn't changed in 100 million years seems believable!

[edit] Trivia

[edit] Real Life

The Arapaima is probably most known for being one of the largest freshwater fish in the world. The Arapaima can be found in South America. The Arapaima in the past, and present, has been a large source of meat for populations and can be easily harpooned due to its size. The Arapaima has also made appearences in a variety of other video games as a rare catch and even once had a gold version.
