File this under amazing but true. Fisherman Raphael Biagini reeled in what is believed to be a 30-pound koi carp in France, where the fish are quite popular. The fish, a vivid orange, looks a great deal like a giant goldfish.
This really isn't that amazing. There are giant Goldfish (Gold Carp) in San Antonio too, though not quite as large. They are located in a pond at the Japanese Tea Gardens near the San Antonio zoo.
