A big fish 一条大鱼

当我们形容某人是 a big fish 一条大鱼时,这就是说这个人是一个重要人物。


The whale shark is the largest fish in the ocean and is generally found in tropical or warmer seas. Although it has a lifespan of over 70 years, the fish is currently under threat due to the demand for shark fin soup, popular in Asia. China recently announced a ban on shark fin soup from all official banquets.
