Milkfish (Chanos chanos)
Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, 2nd February 2016

This photo of the carcass of a Milkfish was shared by Yap Xinli. I also came across it later that same day and took some photos of my own.

The location of this dead fish, on one of the wooden bridges within Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, suggests that it had been picked up and then dropped by another animal, possibly a Bird of Prey or a Feral Dog (Canis lupus familiaris).

Given that Milkfish are raised in some of the fish farms in the waters of the western Straits of Johor, it is difficult to determine whether the Milkfishes found in these waters are of captive or wild origin.
