You can catch these along our shorelines and can tolerate freshwater. The ones in the pictures are from Sembawang Park. ;)

Lots of predatory fish like milkfish. It is a commonly sold live in tackleshops and fishing ponds as baits. Good thing about milkfish is that they're pretty hardy and don't die easily like tambans.
