Marine experts further clarified that the sowa fish comes close to the shores of Jiwani and the adjacent seas in the summer for breeding.
A Gwadar fisherman struck gold on Sunday when he accidentally caught a rare sowa fish off the coast of Jiwani. The sowa fish is a rare fish breed that is similar in form to the European sea bass. It has a pearly silver coloration and a yellow-colored mouth.
According to aquatic life experts, the rare croaker fish is said to be of great commercial importance. In some Asian and European countries, it has a high demand.
The fish’s popularity stems from the special type of matter that is found in the fish. This matter is considered to be more precious than the meat of the fish as it is used by pharmaceuticals in the production of surgical items.
Explaining how the fisherman caught the rare fish, the locals said:
It got stuck in the net of the fisherman.
Marine experts further clarified that the sowa fish comes close to the shores of Jiwani and the adjacent seas in the summer for breeding. This explains why the rare fish was found by the lucky fisherman.

It should be noted that three days ago, a similar fish was caught from the sea of Jiwani and it was sold for Rs. 780,000 at an auction.
