A couple of days ago, a man fishing in Guangdong ZhanJiang city caught a 107.8 lbs slate cod croaker and sold it to a local hotel restaurant for about US$75,000, almost $700 a pound.

Three years ago, a similar cod fish weighing 105.6 lbs sold for US$28,800. Besides being a delicacy, Chinese people believe the fish’s stomach has a very high medical value for treating human stomach problems.
