These Sowa fish can be quite hefty, weighing between 20 to 40 kilograms and growing up to 1.5 meters long. The amazing part is that each fish can be auctioned off for a massive PKR 70 lakh! Imagine that!

Baloch, still buzzing with excitement, mentioned that while they were out fishing in the open sea of Karachi, they stumbled upon this treasure. He plans to share the big sum of money they earned with his crew, a group of seven hardworking people who helped make this unexpected fortune possible.

Now, the Sowa fish isn’t just a money-maker; it’s also a big deal in local culture and food. People believe it has something special that can be used in traditional medicines and tasty local dishes.

This isn’t the first time the Sowa fish has changed someone’s life. In 2021, another fisherman in Gwadar got rich quick by selling a 48-kilogram Sowa fish for a whopping 86.4 lakh Pakistani rupees in an auction, according to Geo News.

So, as stories of good luck keep popping up, the Sowa fish becomes a symbol of unexpected fortune, adding a splash of tradition, culture, and mystery to the lively coastal life of Karachi.
