Alligator Gar. (Lapisosteus spatula). Max length 3m. Max weight 137 kg/ 302 lb.Predatory. The Alligator Gar is found in the Ohio, Mississippi and Gulf Coast Rivers reaching as far south as the Mexican coast. This predatory species with a pike-like form and a head resembling an alligator is an aggressive predator feeding on all manner of live and dead fish. This crocodilian predator favours slow moving backwaters, lakes and bayous of large rivers and often enters brackish and salt-marine waters in search of prey. The Alligator Gar has been introduced into various fisheries throughout Thailand over the last ten years.

Arapaima. (Arapaima gigas). Max length 3m. Max weight 200 kg/ 440 lb. Predatory. The Arapaima Gigas is to be found in the great Amazon River system in Peru, Brazil, Columbia and the Araguaia River and its various tributaries in Guyana. This armour plated predator is a member of the ancient Osteoglosssids (bony tongues) order of fishes. The Arapaima is to be found in the northern parts of South America throughout the Amazon basin where it aggressively hunts its prey. With this prehistoric predator inhabiting the largest and wildest river system on earth very little is known about its distribution in the river system. The Arapaima gigas in its natural habitat swims in some of the wildest waters on the planet which endure seasonal flooding in the monsoon season causing the mighty Amazon to swell and invade the surrounding jungles. With the offset of the dry season the water levels recede rapidly leaving landlocked pools alongside the mighty river. Arapaima gigas become trapped in these pools which soon become depleted of oxygen but through thousands of years of evolution are able to breathe by way of a primitive type of lung surfacing regularily and gulping oxygen. The Arapaima is a highly adept predator and is widely recognised as one of the largest freshwater predators on the planet. The Arapaima gigas has a fearsome prehistoric appearance with a protruding lower jaw and armoured scaling and is truly a formidable predator. With its awesome crimson colouration spreading the length of its body from its tail and its gigantic size the Arapaima is the ultimate freshwater predator. Arapaima gigas have been introduced to Thailand for over twenty years and are established in various commercial fisheries throughout Thailand.

Barramundi. (Lates calcarifer). Max weight 37.85 kg/ 83 lb 7oz. Predatory. The Barramundi is found in both fresh and brackish water and has a wide range covering the Indian Oceans coastal waters from the Persian Gulf to Indonesia, China, Australia and the Philippines. The Barramundi is a member of the perciformes (perch-like fishes) family and is an extremely aggressive predatory fish. With a Perch-like appearance flanked with silver scales the Barramundi is a highly energetic and acrobatic fish and is highly prized by lure fisherman across the globe. Barramundi were introduced to Thailand over twenty years ago where they have thrived in commercial fisheries.

Carp, Giant Siamese. (Catlocarpio siamensis). Max length 2m. Max weight 100kg+/ 220 lbs. Omnivorous. The Giant Siamese Carp is found in the lakes and river systems of Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Southern Vietnam. The Giant Siamese Carp is the largest member of the Cyprinidae (carps) family and has been referred to as the ‘Mother of all Carps’. In Thailand it is thought that these giant carp migrate throughout the river systems of the Mekong Basin attaining huge weights in the excess of 100kg. Sadly specimens of this size are becoming increasingly rare in the fish’s natural habitat due to pollution, over fishing and the introduction of dams blocking the fish’s migratory routes. The Giant Siamese Carp is the ultimate carp species sporting a gigantic rudder-like tail and large blue to bronze plated scales covering its entire body. The Giant Siamese Carp has an extremely large frame reaching lengths of 2 metres with a massive girth and huge cavernous mouth. This carp is an extremely hard fighting fish renowned for its elusive and wily nature. Giant Siamese Carp are present in various commercial fisheries in Thailand attaining huge weights in the excess of 83 kg.

Catfish, Giant Mekong. (Pangasianadon gigas). Max weight 293 kg/ 644 lb. Omnivorous/ Predatory. The Giant Mekong Catfish is restricted in its range to the Mekong River and its tributaries in Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. This highly endangered species is a contender for the largest freshwater fish in the world. Commercial fishing for this species in the Mekong River has been banned in Thailand due to the highly endangered status that this fish holds. This migratory giant has been netted at weights approaching 300 kg’s but sadly specimens of this size are becoming extremely rare due to commercial fishing and the construction of Dams blocking its migratory routes. The Giant Mekong Catfish is an extremely muscular fish with a shark-like colouration of silver/ grey. This monster catfish species reaches lengths of over 4 metres and has a huge rudder like tail and vast cavernous mouth. The Giant Mekong Catfish has a smooth shark-like body without scales with orange fins and tail and is possibly the hardest fighting freshwater fish on the planet. Although endangered in its natural environment this heavy weight catfish is to be found in most of Thailand’s commercial fisheries reaching weights of over 100kg’s.

Stingray, Giant Freshwater. (Himantura Chaophraya). Max weight 450 kg+/ 1000lbs. Predatory. The Giant Freshwater Stingray is the largest freshwater fish on the planet reaching weights approaching 1000 lbs. This prehistoric relic inhabits some of the wildest and remote waters on earth including the Mekong, Maeklong, Ban Pakong, Chaophraya, Tachin and Tapi Rivers in Thailand and is also distributed in Borneo, New Guinea and Australia. This nomadic and understudied ancient predator is one of the largest living Dasyatids (whip-rays) family of fishes left on the planet. The Giant Freshwater Stingray can be found throughout the great river systems of Thailand in freshwater and estuarine enviroments and is the largest true freshwater fish on the planet. This mighty stoneage predator is easily identifiable due to its immense rounded disc-like shape measuring upto 3 metres in width with a prominent snout tip and whip-like tail. Within the central section of the disc the main body of the ray is located housing the fish’s internal organs and in some specimens displaying the endoskeleton of the creature.The Giant Freshwater Stingray has a dark brown surface on its upper side with a highly abrasive textured skin. The creature’s underside is of a very smooth nature characteristically white in colour with a grey to brown colouration around the edges.
