As the news about the discovery of bizarre creatures began to circulate, people from neighbouring villages rushed to the Budhi Morang, Mulghat area to collect them.

A local journalist Mohan Bantawa said the fish es weigh 65 to 80 kg each. As many as 10,000 tones of fish es were recovered in a single day from the Tamor River banks in Dhankuta district. The fishes were sold for up to Rs 400 per kilo in local market, Bantawa said.
