Habitat and Ecology: The juveniles are omnivorous and adults are predatory (Rahman 1989, Islam 2002). It inhabits aquatic vegetation of clear to turbid freshwater, sandy, gravel or rock substrate of estuaries and sea waters. The species is benthopelagic and amphidromous (Riede 2004).
Justification: This species is available in all kinds of fresh, estuarine and sea waters in Bangladesh. However, apparent data suggest its population decline but there exists no empirical information to support it and no major widespread threats are reported so far to place this species in any threatened category. Thus, it is assessed as Least Concern.
