|Ripsaw Catfish (Oxydoras niger)||Doradidae||100kg||The ripsaw catfish (Oxydoras niger) or cuiu cuiu is a species of thorny catfish native to the Amazon, Essequibo and São Francisco basins in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru and Venezuela. This species grows to a length of 100 centimetres (39 in) SL and weights up to 13 kilograms (29 lb). This species is a minor component of local commercial fisheries. Has lateral thorns that can damage a potential predator or handler. It feeds by shifting through sand and detecting eatable parts with the taste receptors in the roof and floor of its mouth.|
|Mekong giant catfish (Pla buek)||Pangasiidae||290kg||Grey to white in colour and lacking stripes, the Mekong giant catfish is distinguished from other large catfish species in the river by the near-total lack of barbels and the absence of teeth. The Mekong giant catfish once held the Guinness World Records’ position for the world’s largest freshwater fish in 2005.|
|Pla Chon (Arapaima paiche)||Arapaimidae||200kg||Arapaima native to the Amazon and Essequibo basins of South America. Genus Arapaima is the type genus of the family Arapaimidae. They are among the world’s largest freshwater fish, reaching as much as 3 m (9.8 ft). They are an important food fish. They have declined in the native range due to overfishing and habitat loss. In contrast, arapaima have been introduced to several tropical regions outside the native range (within South America and elsewhere), where they are sometimes considered invasive species.|
|Black pacu||Characidae||40kg||Pacu, along with piranha, are currently further classified into the family Serrasalmidae (formerly a subfamily of Characidae). Serrasalmidae means “serrated salmon family” and refers to the serrated keel running along the belly of these fish. However, dental characteristics and feeding habits further separate the two groups from each other.[|
|Yeesok Thai (Jullien’s golden carp)||Cyprinidae||70kg||This fish has many identifying characteristics. Most noticeable are its five longitudinal stripes above its lateral line. For its teeth, it has large pharyngeal teeth in a single row. This fish eats freshwater shellfish, prawns, and aquatic plants. They tend to eat more during the wet season, when food is abundant, and less during the dry season.|
|Rohu (Pla Yeesok Tad)||Cyprinidae||50kg||The species is an omnivore with specific food preferences at different life stages. During the early stages of its lifecycle, it eats mainly zooplankton, but as it grows, it eats more and more phytoplankton, and as a juvenile or adult is a herbivorous column feeder, eating mainly phytoplankton and submerged vegetation|
|Ret Thong Giant (Golden Gourami)||Osphronemidae||25kg||The giant gourami (Osphronemus goramy) is a species of large gourami native to freshwater habitats in Southeast Asia, with its occurrence in other locations due to introductions. This species is commercially important as a food fish and is also farmed. It can also be found in the aquarium trade. The species has been used for weed control, also on highly invasive aquatic plants|
|iridescent shark (swai)||Pangasiidae||44kg||The iridescent shark (Pangasianodon hypophthalmus) is a species of shark catfish (family Pangasiidae) native to the rivers of Southeast Asia. Despite its name, it is not a shark. It is found in the Mekong basin as well as the Chao Phraya River, and is heavily cultivated for food there.|
The meat is often marketed under the common name swai. It has also been introduced into other river basins as a food source,
|Giant Siamese Carp (Pla Cohor)||Cyprinidae||200kg||Maeklong, Mekong & Chao Phraya basins. They are tremendous fighters and once hooked will try to drag you to the bottom of the pond.|
|Snakehead (Pla Chon Ngoo Aow)||Channidae||25kg||Snakeheads are thrust-feeders that consume plankton, aquatic insects, and mollusks when small. As adults, they mostly feed on other fish (such as carp) or on frogs. In rare cases, small rodents such as rats are eaten.|
|North African Sharptooth Catfish||Siluriformes||60kg||The African sharptooth catfish is a large, eel-like fish, usually of dark gray or black coloration on the back, fading to a white belly. In Africa, this catfish has been reported as being second in size|
|Gourami||Osphronemidae||4kg||Many gouramis have an elongated, feeler-like ray at the front of each of their pelvic fins. All living species show parental care: some are mouthbrooders, and others, like the Siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens), build bubble nests. Currently, about 133 species are recognised, placed in four subfamilies and about 15 genera.|
|Nile tilapia||Cichlidae||5kg||The Nile tilapia has distinctive, regular, vertical stripes extending as far down the body as the bottom edge of the caudal fin, with variable coloration. Adults reach up to 60 cm (24 in) in length|
|Walking catfish||Clariidae||2kg||The walking catfish (Clarias batrachus) is a species of freshwater airbreathing catfish native to Southeast Asia. It is named for its ability to “walk” and wiggle across dry land, to find food or suitable environments. While it does not truly walk as most bipeds or quadrupeds do, it has the ability to use its pectoral fins to keep it upright as it makes a wiggling motion with snakelike movements.|
|Red Devil (Pla Tubtim)||Cichlidae||3kg||S.E. Asia. This fish breeds very well here and serves as natural food for the larger predators. Fairly easy to catch near the bank and can be good fun for the kids|
|Redtail Catfish||Pimelodidae||100kg||Not native to Thailand but breeds well here. Tremendous fighting and staying power coupled with the ability to tangle you and hence unhook itself.|
