Fishes in Kenyir Lake

With a water catchment area of 38,000 hectares, Kenyir Lake is, naturally, a haven for freshwater fishes. During the wet seam when rain fails almost everyday, fishes can he caught using your bare hands! A recent study revealed that there are some 300 species of freshwater fish dwelling in this lake.

The presence of protruding dead trees around the lake serves as the most perfect breeding grounds for these fishers as algae growing on dead trees and branches serve as the main form of sustenance for the fishes. However, a majority of these fishes still thrive in the rivers flowing into Kenyir especially near estuaries where nutrients are found in abundance. From studies and observations conducted by the Department of Fisheries, species such as the big Lampan Sungai, Lalang, Parang, Kawang, Terbul and Sebarau are found in waters in and around the dead trees. This indicates that these fishes have successfully colonized these areas and prove that dead trees have become an part of the lake.

Large scale breeding in cages at Kenyir Lake has shown tremendous success. Research conducted by the Fisheries Department estimates that 60 to 100 tonnes of fish can be harvested annually from the lake.
