Aspiration of a live fish is a very uncommon occurrence. We report a case of a 12-year-old boy from rural India who, while fishing, accidentally choked on a live fish, resulting in its lodgment in the left main stem bronchus. We present a brief overview of literature, emphasizing on symptoms, recognition, and management, in an attempt to increase awareness among physicians of this rare entity.
