147-kilo Giant Lapu-Lapu Caught in Antique , Philippines


Our beloved country Philippines is one of the most beautiful countries according to a number of foreign tourists who would often visit our place. As a matter of fact, there were also some foreign nationals who decided to live in the country for good because they fell in love with our country’s culture and the breath-taking tourist destinations we have here. But aside from the amazing beauty of our country, we are also blessed to have a wide range of marine life as we are surrounded by water.

As a matter of fact, it was just recently when a giant Lapu-Lapu was found in Antique. Fishing is one of the sources of income of many Filipino especially in the provinces near bodies of water. A lot of fishermen and their family depends on the livelihood they can get in the oceans and other bodies of water around them. We have a lot of species of fish in our oceans and Filipino fishermen would often sell their fishes at the market for a reasonable price. But this kind of fish, leopard coral trout (Plectropomus leopardus) commonly known by the public as “Lapu-Lapu” was really not a usual fish at your plate because it would not fit on your usual plate.

Lapu-Lapu is a kind of fish found in the Philippines and is also considered as one of the most expensive and tasty fish among others. It is a red-colored fish that was believed to be a good luck charm when eaten. There are a lot of 5-star hotels that serve Lapu-Lapu in western countries just like in Hong Kong and Singapore, a meal actually ranges about 150 dollars. This 147-kilo giant Lapu-Lapu was caught in Culasi, Antique.

The residents were very surprised and shocked to see such a big catch! The fishermen brought the gigantic fish on the shore and it was immediately bought by an unknown buyer. It was actually not the first time the residents witness such huge scenario because it was also in 2015 when other fishermen from Antique had also caught a “Bu-an”, the local name of Lapu-Lapu in the province.

The gigantic Lapu-Lapu they caught weighs 176 kilos and 7-feet tall. It can also be remembered that in 2017, the same thing happened in Puerto Princesa in Palawan. It was believed that this fishes had grown much bigger because of the implementation of Palawan Council of Sustainable Development which is known as the “open-close” season.
