Several species of Sailfin Catfishes (Pterygoplichthys spp.) have been introduced to various parts of the world, probably due to the release and abandonment of aquarium pets.

Two similar-looking species of Sailfin Armoured Catfish are believed to have feral populations in Singapore:

Amazon Sailfin Catfish (Pterygoplichthys pardalis)

Vermiculated Sailfin Catfish (Pterygoplichthys disjunctivus)

Taking place from 20th May to 7th June, researchers and volunteers will be involved in collecting samples and surveying various marine habitats, in an attempt to catalogue the marine life that lives in the waters to the south of Singapore.
