Description

Clupeichthys aesarnensis, a member of the Clupeidae family, is commonly referred to as "Bilis Sungai" or "Thai River Sprat”. It is predominantly found in the Mekong Basin in Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Tasek Bera, Malaysia. This fish is able to adapt to the freshwater and potamodromous environments (Whitehead, 1985). It is a nocturnal animal and it is attracted to bright light. It has a yellowish-to-grey body and a silvery-white transverse line from the gill opening to the caudal peduncle (Poungcharean, 2006). The maximum length for this fish can attain is up to 70 mm, whereas the average length of an adult is 46 mm (Baird et al., 1999). The average lifespan of this fish is only nine months (Sirimongkontaworn & Fernando, 1994; Jutagate et al., 2003). During the breeding season, this fish will form school at the pelagic zone (Poungcharean, 2006).
