According to Korean media reports on December 30, 2013, fishermen in Busan, South Korea, captured a giant carp, 4.5 meters in length and weighing 100 kilograms. This giant squid was extremely rare and immediately attracted many citizens' attention after being dragged ashore. Kim, a local fisherman, said that he had been fishing for 40 years and was the first time he had seen such a large carp. "I did not expect that the eyes of a squid could be so big." He sighed.
According to South Korea's aquatic scientific research personnel, giant squid are mostly found in the deep sea, and it is very difficult for Busan fishermen to capture it. It is reported that this giant eel was eventually sold at a price of 300,000 won (approximately 1,700 yuan).
