The world’s most expensive fish. For now…

An underwater camera snapped a picture of a 21-inch steelhead trout using the Ventura River’s $9.5 million fish ladder.

Biologists believe it’s the first steelhead this year to pass through the fish ladder, which was built to allow the endangered trout to go upstream around the Robles Diversion that sends water to Lake Casitas.

The trout was seen on the ladder last Thursday. The following day, a 25-inch trout was seen using the ladder” – San Jose Mercury News

Which, by my reckoning, makes it £4.75m a fish. What do you suppose the average must drop to before the person who signed the cheque gets a full night’s sleep?
