Pink Mud Eel

Pink Mud Eel (Macrotrema caligans)
Pasir Ris, 30th December 2009

This carcass of what appears to be a Pink Mud Eel was found by James Koh, who documented this and other dead fishes during a mass mortality event that occurred in December 2009.

This is one of many little-known species inhabiting shores that will be surveyed as part of the Northern Expedition of the Comprehensive Marine Biodiversity Survey. Taking place from 15th October to 2nd November, 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 along the northern coasts of Singapore.
