  • Channa striata is a species of the fresh water snakehead fish of Channidae family that normally resides in a temperature of 25–27℃. It is native to South and Southeast Asia and have long been regarded as valuable fish in far East. It has also been introduced to some Pacific Islands. Striped snakehead is a obligatory air-breathing carnivorous fish that were once considered a pest or as a means to control unwanted fry and fingerlings production from tilapia or carp in aquaculture ponds.[1] [2].
