  1. 0 Votes

    The Nile Perch can grow up to a weight of 180 kg and a length of 1.8 meters (about 6 feet and 400 pounds). The largest ever caught was said to be an amazing 232 kg (516 pounds)! Their size, popularity as a sporting fish and edibility caused them to be introduced as a sporting fish to Lake Victoria, where they have had several unforeseen and devastating consequences on the ecosystem.
