The arapaima, pirarucu, or paiche (Arapaima gigas) is a South American tropical freshwater fish. It is a living fossil and one of the largest freshwater fishes in the world.

Arapaima can reach lengths of more than 2 m (6.6 ft), in some exceptional cases even more than 2.5 m (8.2 ft) and over 100 kg (220 lbs). The often cited maximum length of 4.5 m (14.8 ft) comes from a single second-hand-report from the first half of the nineteenth century, and is not confirmed.[citation needed] The maximum-cited weight for the species is 200 kg (440 lbs).

Taken underwater at a local fishing spot with Canon D10. After using it for almost a year, this is my comments below. Survived my Maldive trip when 90% of the time the camera was in saltwater while doing fly fishing.

Built = 4.5/5
Aesthetics = 4/5
Design = 4/5 (Abit bulky for some people but there is a reason)
Picture Quality = 4.5/5 ( For a budget waterproof camera, it beats the Olympus system hands down)
