Scandinavian Swimmers Warned About Testicle-Attacking Monster Fish
 
A testicle-crushing vegetarian monster fish from South America has invaded the waters off Scandinavia. Last week, fisherman in the Oresund Sound between Sweden and Denmark reeled in a pacu, a fish best known for its sharp teeth and occasional attacks on male genitalia.

The pacu is a freshwater tropical species. Color me skeptical on the claim that one was caught alive in that region.

The area may not be as salty as the open ocean. It is fed by lots of significant rivers and does not have the evaporation rate that a body like the Gulf of Mexico would. I figure it/they will not survive the winter anyway, even if they could stand the relative warmth of the summer.
