Asia: Mekong and Chao Phraya basins, Malay Peninsula, Indochina, Philippines and Indonesia. Record from Fiji needs confirmation.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in rivers, swamps, reservoirs and canals. Enters flooded forest (Ref. 9497). Feeds on small fishes, shrimps, aquatic insects, mollusks and crabs (Ref. 6459). Considered a delicacy over much of eastern Asia. Exported fishes command a high price (Ref. 12693). Maybe the largest species of the goby-like fishes.

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01096 (0.00427 - 0.02816), b=3.05 (2.83 - 3.27), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.1   ±0.7 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Fec = 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (61 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
