A fisherman in the central province of Nghe An Sunday caught a strange, unidentified fish this week.
The fish, which weighs more than 30 kilogram and is one meter length, has a flat, round body with small eyes and gills, a tiny mouth, short tail and long fins, according to the People's Committee in Nghe An's Quynh Lap Commune.
It looks like a giant, oval dinner plate with wings.
The family of the fisherman Nguyen Xuan Th. (name shortened), was frightened of the creature. He sold it to a trader at Quynh Phuong Fish Market in the namesake commune for VND500,000. A woman, Nguyen Thi Khanh, then bought it for VND1 million.
Khanh now keeps the dead fish in her fridge. Hundreds of residents visited Khanh's house to see the creature, the likes of which no one has seen before.
