O. marmoratus

The marble goby, (Oxyeleotris Marmorata) is widely distributed in fresh water habitats throughout Asia; Mekong and Chao Praya basins, rivers and other water bodies in Malaysia, Singapore, Indochina, Philippines and Indonesia. This species is an economically important fish in the Southeast Asian region, especially in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. It is highly popular among the Chinese community due to its fine texture, tasty white flesh and is believed to have healing properties. It is said, best eaten after surgeries or childbirths. Some says it can prolonged life. In Malaysia, commercialization of this type of fish is not widely established. Demands are largely dependent on wild populations thus fetching high prices in the market.
