|Mozambique Sea Catfish|
Local common name:
|Mozambique Sea Catfish
Ariidae [Sea Catfishes]
Marine, brackish, freshwater
Yes, this fish was caught offshore Changi during my 8th Offshore trip.
Sea catfishes are extremely difficult to ID as most of them look identical. It is ID mainly thru the different shapes of 'upper tooth patches' in its mouth & partially from the different patterns on the 'top view of the head.'
This fish: Dorsal spines:1, rays:6-7 ; Anal spines:0, rays:12
Credit goes to 'Kelvin KP Lim' in helping in the ID of this fish
