Angler catches 5-kilogram su vang fish

As the fish was defined as su vang, fisherman Quan put it in a tank to breed yet it died after a few hours. Therefore, the fisherman kept it in ice.
The fish mostly live in the Indian ocean, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and China. It is sold at high price as its ball is used to produce specialized suture thread, which is priced for tens of thousands of USD/bladder, depending on the length.
