According to researchers at the World Wildlife Fund in Cali, Colombia, juvenile cobia, escaped from a fishing farm off the coast of Ecuador that began operating earlier in 2015. Intruders had probably cut a net cage, perhaps intending to catch and sell the fish. Cobia are fast-swimming predators that can migrate long distances and grow to about 2 meters long. According to the aquaculture company Ocean Farm in Manta, Ecuador, which runs the farm, roughly 1,500 cobia fled.
