12-year-old, Nichola Louise Ward recently caught and released her very first ferox trout which weighed in at an impressive 6.12-kilograms (13-pounds, 8-ounces) 🙌🏼. She was fishing with her dad and Captain Tomi Kurman in Lough Corrib, Ireland 🇮🇪. Ferox trout is a name typically used to describe large, piscivorous brown trout, however, many scientists believe them to be a separate species based on genetic variations in certain lochs.

As a point of clarification: 'overfished' means the population size is smaller than sustainable levels, while 'overfishing' means the species has a current fishing mortality level higher than sustainable levels.
