Specimen List **Updated 19th January 10**

Post by Peace » Sun Apr 10, 2005 5:06 pm

Below is a list of links to discussion topics on each species of fish. There is a similar poll in each of these threads which I wish every angler to participate in. Each angler can help by simply sharing their encounter with each species of fishes. We hope to learn about the diversity and distribution of different species of fishes around our little island.

Many thanks in advance for your contribution. :grin: :flower:

Thanks for the find, some of those are actually already in HLF if you check it up. ;) There's definitely many more species in our waters not listed in HLF, I'll definitely add them to the site if manage to get a picture of it. :)

I'll need a picture of that fish first. It's not a native fish and I don't recall seeing reports of it being them in the wild, but they can certainly adapt to our reservoir waters.
