    Looks like a Hammour to me. It probably just lost its way from the Arabian Gulf waters into the wider Arabian Sea. But people, don't eat animals of any kind. Vegetables are good for you, and great for the environment!

    In-the-near-future if this fish 🐟 is not found then they'll say it's because of Narendra Modi and name him for everything. India has too many jerks for all the wrong reasons. 🙄😟😯

    Ghol fish is known as 'sea gold', this rare species of fish got a pouch in its stomach, which has potent medicinal properties and has a high valuation in the overseas market. The collagen content in the ghol fish prevents wrinkles and also keeps the elasticity of the skin intact. this fish attracts high demand in China, Japan, Singapore, Korea and Eastern Asian countries for its many proteins, minerals and vitamins .....
