    Just want to throw this out there as I was looking up what are the largest freshwater fish in the world and trying to think of what new fish could be added to the game for possible future deco and foods as new trees are added and older trees are given a once over. As it seems that freshwater fishing has the least diversity of desired fish as well as smallest fishing trophies, my hopes would be that if any new fish get added to the game down the road that they might be freshwater fish.

    As such, I have a few suggestions:


    Arapaima
    Found in the Amazon River, these giant fish are as ancient as they are large. Also known as pirarucu in Brazil and paiche in Peru, arapaima have been around since the Miocene and are considered living fossils. Once capable of growing to a length of 10 feet and a weight of 300 pounds, due to over-fishing, arapaima now reach about 6 feet in length and 275 pounds.

    Giant Freshwater Stingray
    These freshwater fish can grow to massive sizes, with some weighing in excess of 1,300 pounds and measuring nearly 15 feet across. Found in the rivers of Southeast Asia, they have tails that measure up to 15 inches long with a serrated spike that is capable of piercing bone and injecting venom.
