Man Arrested for Smuggling Armoured Catfish

I guess you can smuggle anything in your suitcase if you try hard enough.

A Chinese man has been arrested for allegedly smuggling 13 armoured catfish into Australia on a Melbourne-bound flight.

The 34-year-old man arrived in Melbourne on a flight from Hong Kong on August 21 and was referred to the Australian Customs Service following a quarantine x-ray examination.

Customs officers allegedly found a cardboard box containing the live fish in plastic bags.
