Mangrove Fish

Post by Shanicus » Sun May 04, 2014 5:50 pm

Hi there!

I'm currently doing research on mangrove fish in Singapore. I've stumbled on a few databases online (Digital Nature Archive, Guide to Mangroves of Singapore, Flora and Fauna Web) but I was wondering if anyone here also had their own book or an online database that had a fairly thorough list of fish I could find in our mangroves.

Thanks very much, hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Shanicus, welcome to HLF. To get an accurate list of fishes in the mangroves, you'd probably need to approach RMBR. There's a checklist of Chek Jawa fishes from sometime back you may or may not find useful. Also, you can checkout this list I've archived. I believe her source from RMBR too but it includes marine fishes.

29.A Guide to Common Marine Fishes of Singapore
18.A Guide to Freshwater Fishes of Singapore
