A young man has been left bewildered after finding this massive "strange-looking" fish while digging a hole in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state. According to Facebook user, Emmanuel Emmanuel Udoh, he was carrying out excavations in a building site when he saw the fish which was supposed to be in water.

Udoh is however questioning if the fish moved to dry land due to pollution in the river.

Read the post he shared on Facebook

About yesterday! OK ..while excavating in a residential /built-up area I found lots of this. And they are quite huge! This one na small one sef ..For real......

Before I ask if it's edible. I wonder what could make fishes leave the rivers and streams to shallow waters in residential areas.

Could it be that the natural waters have been so destroyed by oil exploration, that they now migrate to safer waters with less pollution or it's just a natural occurrence?

Now is this edible? Cos they are lots of them here

maybe they followed the tide of the river to come for convention (meeting) on the mainland and were busy gisting so the water left them behind .lol

Considering doing a roof parapet?
check out price comparison between a concrete cast in suite against polystyrene parapet.
Polystyrene parapet is light weight and doesn't have much impact on the land.
excellent usage on swampy environment.

African Lung fish... Popularly called Ebieseni in Ijaw.

It hibernates inside ground when the land gets dry and can stay for up to a year until it rains and the ground gets wet. It's very common in Bayelsa and Delta state.

Its the sweetest fish ever when smoked or dried. Taste like meat.

Those are air breathing catfish.
They survive both on land (limited period) & in water.
And yes they are edible with some weighing as much of 50kg and 5ft in lenght.
