Snakehead Fish farm Channa striatus

Snakehead Fish farm Channa striatus

Snakehead Fish Chana striatus or called Ikan Haruan, Ikan Gabus in Malaysia, better just known as ‘Snakehead Fish’ is a less commercial activity.

Snakehead Fish Chana striatus is a carnivorous fish that lives in fresh water. Another species of Giant Snakehead (Chana micropeltes) also known as Giant Mudfish is from the same group.The author is fond of catching fish on the Sungai Parit River in front of the house or in the paddy field in the Ring Rice field in Muar. Occasionally fishing in any swamp or fish pond around the village as a young man with his roommates. Fishing a catch is really fun because the charm or strong catch of the catch is so great! … We rarely do when fishing for a missed snooze, because the snake will eat up the bait it uses. Tonight I wrote a bit of info on fish farming technology and information on fish farming for all readers based on their own experience, research and references. There are many species of seafood we can find in Malaysia where there are 4 main groups of seafood we can easily identify. The fish are Todak Haruan Fish (Chana gachua), Palas Haruan Fish (Chana melasoma), Flower Harp (Chana marulloides) and also Harmonious Fish (Chana lucius). All of these fish have been found and caught while fishing in various locations near and near the village. This fish habitat is located in lowland areas where the water has low pH (slightly acidic) and eats shrimp, crickets, worms and even frogs. Its habitat is swampy, river, lake and peat swamp. These fish eat shrimp, fish, crickets, worms and crickets. Harmonious Harp has a snake-like head and its body has interesting patterns. The habitat is similar to that of other seafood. This morning’s article I wrote in “Anim Agro Technology” about the potential of breeding fish in the future. Can the commercial technology of fish breeding technology be developed more sophisticated ?.


Snakehead Fish Chana striatus are believed to be native to Southeast Asia to some parts of India. Most of these fish are native to wildlife living in freshwater such as in rivers, lakes, marshes and other well-watered areas. These delicate chicks have many predators before they grow up . The puppies are raised by both parent and out of hundreds of newborns, there are usually only a few of them that will survive because they are eaten by their mother. The newborn hatching is very delicate in brown and gathers where his mother nests by removing bubbles on it. While the mother is caring for the child, sometimes she does not even entertain her fishing bait, so her children may have plenty to eat. Commonly for breeding fish it is necessary to collect wild small fry. The commercial method of breeding fish is commercially required by the parent-child separation technology. This is because the percentage to get the fish of the fish is often very low as the percentage of success. Based on the experience of some breeders the issue of obtaining  fish fry is very significant.

Nowadays the fish have been bred with technology that has been pioneered by the people of Thailand as the fish population has declined due to continued catching activities, slow breeding, poisoning and the impact of water quality declining.

In Thailand only fish of the Snakehead Channa striatus species can be commercialized. This fish only takes 6-9 months for the breed to be harvested compared to the shorter breeding time of 5-5 months. If the fish is bred for a long time then it will require up to 70% of the production cost. Thai fish breeding ponds made in Thailand are typically 800 – 1,600 square meters with a good water source and depth.
