  • Channa striata (snakehead murrel) is a species of snakehead fish. It is also known as the common snakehead, chevron snakehead, and striped snakehead. It is native to South and Southeast Asia, and has been introduced to some Pacific Islands (reports from Madagascar and Hawaii are misidentifications of C. maculata).
  • Channa striatus, the fresh water snakehead fish of Channidae family that normally resides in a temperature of 25–27 C have long been regarded as valuable fish in far East.
  • Striped snakehead, Channa striatus, is a freshwater, 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].
