“Suckermouth catfish” is a tropical fish belonging to the armored catfish family, named for the armor-like longitudinal rows of scutes that cover the upper parts of the head and body, according to Wikipedia. A Naval Commander Md Assaduzzaman, a manager of Bangladesh Fisheries Development Corporation, collected the fish from the fishermen.
It is a rare fish known for its aesthetic beauty with a striped body. Mr. Assadzzaman said his optimistic view that “It is exotic in our country, as it is not commonly found in our country. It is for the first time ever that such a big fish of this species has been found in Kaptai Lake,”& the fish can be grown in the lake, Assaduzzaman said, “I think it can be grown in the lake assuming from its size”.
