NationalNov 21. 2020

By The NationA video clip of a freshwater toadfish found in Krabi province went viral among netizens on Friday.

Ko Lanta district chief Somboon Temchuen, who posted the video clip, said he found the “ugly” fish when fishermen lifted the fish trap from their floating basket.

“Villagers said it was a toadfish that was rarely found,” he said.

Dr Thon Thamrongnawasawa, a lecturer at Kasetsart University’s Faculty of Fisheries, said there were over 80 toadfish species worldwide, adding that sometimes it screams to draw the female’s attention.

“Villagers in some areas eat toadfish and it is not commonly sold in the market,” he said.

He added that toadfish are commonly found in Thailand’s rivers, especially in Songkhla Lake.

“However, this rock-shaped fish has a mild poison on its dorsal and pectoral spines,” he added.
