Zeb Hogan is on the hunt for a goldfish the size of a cow! Giant carp can grow up to weigh 600 pounds and measure 10 feet long, but the trouble with finding these monster fish is … they only live in three of Southeast Asia's rivers. To find out more about this elusive fish, Zeb heads to Thailand, where he helps the Thai Department of Fisheries' transport 30 giant carp into a new breeding pond on the Chao Phraya River.
